Bangkok B&W Episode 5

No comment;


Am making every effort to improve my photo skillz, and today took a jaunty stroll through the sunny streets of Bangkok, gaily snapping photos of the gentle natives. OK, of course it wasn’t like that; car exaust from rush hour nearly made me vomit and two people yelled at me for taking their photos, but it was still good fun. I started at the Saphan Taksin BTS station and made my way along Charoen Krung Road all the way to Chinatown, a long walk that I’ve never done in its entirety.

Taken from Takin Bridge, these are commuters getting off the Chao Phraya Express Boat:

and getting off the river crossing boat from Thonburi:

Just up the road a bit is the Bang Rak market. Can you tell what these people are doing? (It would be much easier if there was color.):

Noy naa (custard apples) for sale along Charoen Krung:

And street vendors:

Approaching Chinatown there is an area where there are countless shops that deal in used engine parts:

How many Thais can you fit in a tuk tuk?

Not hard to tell what part of town these were taken in:
