Longtail Boat Art

Surely one of the most photographed subjects in Thailand is the traditional Thai style "Longtail" boat with it's tall curved prow often decorated with colorful cloth, it's distinctive noisy engine (although some new boats are surprisingly quiet) - it's an obvious symbol of Thailand. I also can't resist! Longtail boats can make a great foreground for a sunset at Kata Beach, or can be a subject in their own right. I took the photo below at Koh Yao Noi island to the east of Phuket. Something about the curves of the boat combined with the square steps .. and I thought it might look nice in black and white.
