In the previous post, it was a fresh way to discover Tokyo through bicycles. They became the main focus while roaming the streets and added another layer of my urban photography.
This is what you get when you wander along the streets of Tokyo.
Even though Tokyo doesn’t have back lanes to explore like in Sydney, its street scapes isn’t less interesting. For some reasons, I found it more similar to Bangkok. The precisions were apparent but there were also some clutters and wits.
I could explore more but it turned out my focus was shifted to something more specific. That shall be discussed on the next post.
Yaowarat (เยาวราช), referred by locals as Chinatown, was the only place I wanted to shoot some photos this time in Bangkok. The subject has been in my interest for a while and I didn’t even scratch its surface.
Of course, there were food, lots of street food and also people. Some stalls had a long line to get their services. But I was more interested in shophouse facades, one of the features that characterised cities in Thailand. Also, small alleys drawn me into them to explore deeper in the environment and its people.
It will be more interesting how a new subway station would affect this urban area.
There always were shoes on the streets either I was in United States or Thailand. Peculiarly, we might not be that dissimilar after all.
It’s the first day I got a full sleep in Bangkok. It’s unsual for me to do an early gym class but I’m glad for having a walk. Something is interesting along the way from Phra Khanong to Ekamai.
