I made these images in Bangkok about a month ago. Iā€™d been to Chinatown (also known as Yaowarat for the main arterial that runs through it) many times, but usually for dinner or a late night snack. After having seen a photowalk series by a local professional, I was inspired to make a daytime trip. It was the middle of the day and hot and humid as can be, but having found a willing accomplice (thank you, Yui!), we made the trip. These were some of the things that I saw.

All images made with a Nikon D800E + Nikkor AF-S 24-120 f/4.

  1. Nice pictures – great light colours. I particularly like the man in the green hat. A really nice portrait.

    • Thanks, ehpem! I’m sort of moving into street photography with my travel stuff. We’ll see where this path leads…. šŸ˜‰

  2. Nice stuff! Would have loved to see a long exposure zoom-in-and-out on the Pepper Neon photo. šŸ™‚

  3. Great photos! My parents grew up in Bangkok’s Chinatown off of Yaowarat road and I have been there many times. Your pictures really capture the spirit of the place.
