Bangkok street photography: city, people, faith, food, night life and fun photos with a story.
Bangkok at night reminds me of the “Sin City” neo-noir movie without the violence: the suspended highways right through the city, the sound of sirens, the strange-looking skyscrapers with a hint of gothic, the shanty places, the red light neon signs and the ladies of the night, the stray dogs and stray people in dark alleys.
Once Bangkok awakes, the motorbikes, the cars, the buses, the tuk-tuks and the street vendors take over the streets. Early in the morning people line up the streets around the golden shiny temples to be blessed by orange cladded monks and to make offerings before going to work.
The colours yellow and orange have greater significance for Thailand. Yellow represents Buddhism and is considered the royal color, the color of Monday which is the King’s birthday. Many people are wearing yellow t-shirts with the royal insignia embroidered as a sign of support for their beloved King.
Today, December the 5th, Thailand celebrates the 87th birthday of King Bhumibol Adulyadej or Rama IX.
A different look at Bangkok besides the main stream photography.
At work, at play, at home.
There is a small shrine in every corner.
Especially street food, there is a lot to taste and a real culinary adventure.
