Seen on an early morning walk


The street Thanon Phra Arthit in Bangkok, Thailand, was gradually waking up on the morning of 7th of April 2013.

    Very rude to take that guy’s photo.

    • Thanks Bob for your comment. Do you mean the second or third picture? Could you please elaborate what is so rude? (Regarding the second, I asked if I could take a photo.)

    It wasn’t rude to take the photo. He clearly didn’t mind, in fact he was probably gratified that someone should think him interesting enough to photograph. The photos capture the essence of today’s world; humans as natural creatures forced to exist in an unnatural environment – some coping, some not. No-one healthy or contented. A street that at first glance looks exotic and cute, but on closer inspection is revealed to be a mess of Western imports, cheap junk, and tasteless advertising for tourists in a degraded cityscape.
    That these photos depress me [a fact that will not surprise you Ollie] doesn’t detract from their excellence. All are well framed, lit and composed.

    • Good to get your feedback, Rigby. It is unfortunate we all can not really choose where we live. We can criticize the surroundings and enviroment, but seldomly the people who live there.

      • rigbyte says:

        You are correct, I cannot [and do not] criticise the people who live there, I’m as much part of the problem as them. We’re all ‘victims’, in a way, of our evolution and natural instincts to survive.

  3. Haha! Refrigerators provided to shops and bars by drink makers sometimes get “censored” if they are caught using them for other-brand drinks…
