Photographing a Horse Polo match can be a bit nerve racking when the players on their horses are charging full speed towards where you are standing. The horses came within three feet of me, their hooves clacked on the top of the boundary. The boundary was a 2 by 6 board that was painted red anchored onto the grass and that was the only thing separating me from the field. The horses would tire frequently and the players would swap horses every five minutes or so. You could here the horses snorting when they were ready to be swapped out for some rested ones. The Horse Polo players were very skilled players they could hit the ball from far away and send the ball with great precision to other team mates. I love taking sports action photos.

Prior to departing for international travel make sure that all of your vaccinations are up to date. Typhoid, MMR, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, and any other vaccination that the CDC, or Health ministry recommends for the country that you will be visiting. For example, when I arrived in Bangkok, Thailand, I did not know that I should have A Japanese encephalitis vaccine. The local travel agent took me to a Seventh Day Adventists medical clinic where I received a safe vaccination. While I was getting vaccinated I overheard a European traveler who was there for a sore on his penis. He said that he had relations with a mistress of the night and awoke to a sore on his penis. I saw all kinds of prostitutes walking out of bars with travelers, good thing I did not sleep with any of them. I told the doctor that I do not sleep with prostitutes for that very reason, I do not want to get any diseases. I was shocked by the doctors response, he told me to use a condom. Condoms are not safe they can break, and besides that if the women is on top of you her vaginal secretions can run down your junk and into your anus. The doctor told me not to eat any raw fruits or vegetables that the street vendors are selling. He told me that they contain pathogens. Apparently, the farmers use human excrement to fertilize their crops. The doctor said to only eat food that is very hot. I took his advice and I did not get sick the whole time that I was in Bangkok, Thailand. In Thailand you have to worry about Dengue fever and Malaria. Every for hours I would spray my body and clothes with mosquito repellent containing deet. While I was in Bangkok, Thailand I had the best duck soup that I had every tasted for $3 per a bowl. In Los Angeles a bowl of duck soup will cost you over $15. In Bangkok the food is very cheap, but be aware that a lot of the street soups are very spicy. Stay away from the bars, they will over charge you for beers and threaten to knock you out if you do not pay them. I always bought my beer from the local market. As soon as you leave your hotel Tuk Tuk driver will approach you and will not leave you alone. Everywhere you walk someone will approach you and try to sell you something. I always would say to these Thai people “My Owl” which means I do not want anything.
How to clean a camera lens. You can purchase my stock photos by clicking on the following link to my photo library at Alamy.com. Stock photography by RJ Styles at Alamy Take the lens that is dirty I prefer to keep the lens attached to the camera, place the camera strap around your neck, and point the lens towards the ground. Take a can of compressed air and thoroughly blow air across the entire lens. I like to use Panco Lens Cleaner. Click the following link to buy Pancro lens cleaner, it is more expensive than most other lens cleaner, but it does not leave detergent residue behind. I also prefer to use Kimwipes for my lens paper. Click the following link to buy Kimwipes. While keeping the camera pointed towards the floor take a piece of lens paper and fold it up spray one end of the lens paper with lens cleaning fluid, and thoroughly wipe the entire front element of the lens. Switch to the dry end of the lens paper and wipe the front element of the lens until all of the streaks are gone. I find that Pancro seems to streak less then other lens cleaners. With camera lens pointed towards the floor blow the lens again with compressed air. Now your lens should be clean. If it is not completely clean repeat the above steps. Please help RJ Styles purchase photography equipment, I require a new lens for bird photography.Any donations would be greatly appreciated, I am a disabled struggling photographer.
