Krungthep Mahanakorn

“Krung Thep Mahanakhon Amon Rattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilok Phop Noppharat Ratchathani Burirom Udomratchaniwet Mahasathan Amon Phiman Awatan Sathit Sakkathattiya Witsanukam Prasit”, or Krungthep, and to most……. Bangkok, is a city where I try to visit as often and walk as much when ever I have the chance.

It is where, back in 2010, I made the decision to more or less ditch my DSLR and return to the past.

The past? Well, after the trip in July 2010, I sold most of my DSLR lenses and bought a rangefinder and uses mainly films from then on. The photographs here are all still in digital………. and was taken the past few years. Hope to return there again this year, with my films……..

Let’s start one from my infrared collection…..

I love digital infrared, but has been quite a while since I used the camera. It just feels too heavy, btw….. I have 100ft of IR B&W film in the fridge.

Don’t ask……. I bump into a photo-shoot in Klong Toei Market. (Canon G9)

Klong Toei is like the “people’s supermarket” in Bangkok. A few blocks away is the Klong Toei Slums……..

The market porters taking a rest. @ Pak Klong Talaat, the flower market by the Chao Phraya. This market is open 24 hours….. best time to visit is really early in the morning when the flowers comes in from all corners of Siam. The smell of the flowers are just heavenly. (Canon G9)

Another Shot taken at Pak Klong Talaat. (Canon G9)

Marching In……. Grand Palace (2007)

I guess, that’s it for Bangkok for the mean time. Hopefully the next posting on Bangkok will be captured on films……..
