One day, for the first time in the trip, while Stilgherrian and I were walking on Sukhumvit Road, I realised that the camera bag were left in the hotel and did not bother to fetch it. That meant there would be no decent tool for the day. On the other hand, I still had the camera phone with me and made the most of the limitation.
I believe every big city in the world has uneven and cracked footpath. Urban environment is a like any other living thing that changes all the time. A street that has perfect footpaths could be read that it is brand new or no one lives there. I am interested in the traces of human behaviours left on the surfaces of the pathways they walk on everyday.
There are something intriguing enough in these images of Bangkok that I have to share them but could not fit somewhere in a particular theme. Therefore I pile them up here. It is quite surreal looking at some of them. Enjoy!
Bangkok’s SkyTrain or BTS has provided remarkable perspectives of the city to the commuters. My original plan was to explore the urban landscape from its stations in music slideshow presentation like when I travelled on the Express Way, a tuk tuk, foot and a boat. However, since many pictures I took from BTS stations were included in some posts on urban landscape, I decided to make it simple.
These two shots were taken 22 seconds apart at Sala Daeng Station on Silom Road, the very heart of business district. It was easy to find contrasts in a big city, no exception Bangkok.
