A collection of random street photos from my four days in Bangkok over Easter Weekend this year. There was quite a bit of walking around despite the hot weather – and typical of Asian cities, it’s all about the street food. One particular thing I noticed about this city was that traffic is a big problem – gridlock and congestion everywhere in the downtown area.

Peter, while looking at something unrelated, I found out about your photography. I really appreciate you B&W’s and in this series the image by the riverside; the father and son. It makes me want to join them in:-)
Thanks for those kind words, Kinga. I too am on a bit of a journey, learning what I can about this art.
It is a fascinating medium and I don’t think you can ever stop learning…
A very enjoyable collection. Well done!
Thank you Sean!
Peter I love this post. Some fantastic images. Thanks for sharing! Wow!
Thanks very much Rob.
Gridlock indeed. The photos give a true sense of the intensity of the streets.
It was crazy! The noise, pollution, heat… I guess people just get used to it.
I guess if it all you have ever known it is normal. makes on grateful for our own world.
