As I mentioned in my last post, I recently went on a photowalk with the “Bangkok Photographers” Facebook group, starting from the Bang Wa BTS station in the bottom left of the Google earth pic above, and finishing at the Klong Bang Luang riverside market in the top right, more or less following the route in red.
Although there are a lot of condos and modern infrastructure going up now, it is one of the older parts of town, peppered with wats and criss-crossed by canals that have not been filled to make way for roads, unlike much of the city on the other side of the river.
It’s not an area that would see a lot of white faces, so I guess the locals would have been a bit surprised to see around 90 photographers, mainly foreigners, strolling around the neighbourhood early on a Sunday morning !
Here’s some of the photos I took that morning …I seem to have concentrated on flowers 🙂 (click to see a larger version)
But it was not all flowers :
