I finally have the time to edit the pictures taken in Bangkok and I can’t wait to share them. Also, swipe to check out the video I’ve created. I took snippets of everyday scenes and complied them into one video.
1. The official religion in Thailand is Buddhism, practiced by more than 95% of the population. There are about 300,000 monks living in the Land of Smiles. Their yellow and orange robes are very recognizable in a sea of modern-day clothing. I spotted these two monks in Chinatown and they were purchasing bottles of coke in 7/11. I wanted to take a portrait shot of them so I waited for a while, walked back and forth outside the store. Some 10 minutes later, they stepped out and I immediately requested for a photo. Monks are normally very friendly, even to foreigners and they agreed without any hesitation. Prior to that, I already planned where they should stand and pose and their bright orange robes contrasted very well with the white wall.
3. A young Thai performing on the BTS platform. Like the previous post, it is common to see teenagers busking on the streets to fund for their education.
4. I took this shot in Chinatown. It was my first time trying grilled bananas and the lady was all smiles. Her grilling technique was impeccable and I cannot help but to take a photograph of her.
5. An elderly waiting for the day to pass. I took this candid shot after I spotted her people-watching casually in Chinatown.
6. You can find coffee everywhere on the streets of Bangkok. Their coffee is sweeter than Singapore’s. On the last day, in a quiet corner, he made one of the best coffee I’ve tasted in BKK. Once again, I cannot help but to take a portrait shot.
