OftR: Street Sketch Artists

Another shot from the night market on Jln Tan Hiok Nee, Johor Bahru.

OftR – Street Dancer

Shot this guy in early September 2012 in my hometown of Johor Bahru Malaysia. This guy was dancing alone with Chinese music from the 50’s or 60’s accompanying him…….. on Jalan Tan Hiok Nee parallel to Jalan Ibrahim.

The place I do consider an extension of the Pasar Karat or Thief’s Market every Saturday night. They do have some performance on the street…… Karaoke, Street Artist (Sketch) and may some Cultural show…..

OftR: Afternoon Siesta

A short blink back to Bangkok………

Off Tha Saphan Phut, on the banks of Menam Chao Phraya, Krungthep Mahanakorn. The motor taxi man taking a rest while waiting for passenger……

Maybe I should do something on them the next time I visit Bangkok, they are an interesting bunch of people.

OftR: Misplaced Allegiance?

Another one before I start with my Krungthep Mahanakorn series, which is currently being developed and scan……… shot this when I organised a small “Jalan-jalan Tembak Foto (JJTF)” or Photo shoot Walkabout in Kuala Lumpur back in 2011.

Another OftR: Night Market, Setia Alam

Wow…….Another One for the Road….. sharing another old photo taken at supposedly the longest night market in Malaysia, another Malaysian obsession of being the best out of a molehill. This market is held every Saturday night and it is located not that far from my home.

On a different note, still no development on the film developing…….. really, really need to catch up.

Saigon: Dong Du

If you are a Muslim, most probably this street will be in your itinerary. Saigon’s Central Mosque and a few halal restaurants are located here.

Dong Du Street is just off Dong Khoi, which is one of the main street/road in Saigon.

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……..
