Tong Nai Pan Noi beach. Located on the “Koh Pangan” – Island of Pangan
in the south of Thailand. I think it’s the best beach on this island. It’s a very nice place for chilling, with fully natural environment and friendly people. I went there during the beginning of January 2007. Such a nice sunshine, warm calm beach and the best moon light scene in the evening time. Is it a good spot for honeymoon? No question! You will be the luckiest couple on Earth. There is Tong Nai Pan Yai (a bigger beach on the other side) a really great place to go too. There are many other things to shoot and to discover.
Tong Nai Pan Yai is located basically at the same place as the Tong Nai Pan Noi. The difference is that Tong Nai Pan Yai is bigger (“Yai” means “Big”, “Noi” means “small”) and the resorts are more high class, more expensive, exclusive. I don’t really go to the big one, it’s too expensive. Not only you can stay here and shoot but you can take a private bus to go around Pangan island and shoot some more. This place is on the same island that has the Full Moon party I was also writing about, but it takes place on the different side of the island. This beach, they said is the most beautiful beach on Pangan island, but not many people come, because it’s far from the main pier and it’s far from the civilization. I don’t like civilization that much, I like to chill with nice beach and ocean.

This is the story of my first adventure on the beach this year. In the middle of June, I took my first sunbath along the seaside on a small public beach in Varazze - a rather small and unkempt place which I will never return to in the future. Read more to find out why!
The French photographer Bruno Barbey took a series of photos in Southern Italy in the '60s, many of these in the city of Naples. In this tribute to a great master of social and street photography, I'll show you a series of photos that I took in the islands of Ischia and Procida located a few kilometers from this wonderful city. Read more after the jump!
If you want to spend a weekend near the sea but do not want to restrict yourself to the usual routine consisting of the hotel and the beach, I recommend taking a trip to Cesena and Cesenatico, two towns located on the Adriatic coast of central Italy. I did mine by combining sunbathing and cultural excursions.This was documented with my trusty Lomo LC-A. Have a look!
