Bang Sue station….picking our way through the parcels !

Last weekend I went on a photo-walk with the “Bangkok Photographers” Facebook Group round the Bang Sue community ( Google maps) in the north of Bangkok near the well known Chatuchak Market.

Nestled between the railway tracks and a couple of khlongs (canals) it is not exactly the most salubrious part of Bangkok, but there are certainly worse slum areas than Bang Sue. I don’t know what the locals thought of all us photographers, mostly foreigners but some Thais, walking around the back alleys on a hot Bangkok morning but they were friendly and welcoming….and patient with everybody asking for a photo, such as this old lady :

I think everybody took her picture !

My favourite shot of the day :

After every walk a collection of everybody’s photos are published in an online magazine, this walk’s images are here if anybody wants to have a look. There is usually a walk every month, but not in this July,so if you are a photographer coming to Bangkok, and want to perhaps see an off the beaten track part of the city check out the Facebook page for a schedule.
