Here is my new youtube video: Sampeng Lane Market, Bangkok.
Hope you enjoy.
I have always been fascinated by the street vendors of Thailand. Their magic on the streets producing the right product for the customer, to capture their presence to buy their wares. Studying their manner with people is an experience I have always envied. Passing by their carts and seeing the same people return day after day is a credit to their capabilities as entrepreneurs. When you look, no, observe their actions, the street vendor is in the zone. Total concentration to provide the service for an end result. The picture below was captured during a Sunday visit to the best market place I have visited in my time in Thailand. It is non other than Sampeng Lane Market or the full tittle Soi Wanit 1.
A crowded maze of streets of both retail and wholesale products for sale and this should not be missed if in Bangkok, if you want to feel the Chinese influence of the city. If for a short time. Make this a priority on your list.
Total work ethic to keep the customer satisfied and the end resort money in the pocket.
Until next time:
On the way to China Town today I managed to capture a couple of pictures of the Temple from the car. My wife goes crazy when I have the camera in my lap while driving, so better not take pictures whilst driving. This time I wasn’t driving. I am pretty sure the name of the temple is Wat Hua Lamphong
Living and working in a town just out of Rayong for the last 9 years, you become attached to the place and have fond memories that I will cherish. Now that I will be leaving and heading back to the UK. After a total of 20 years in Thailand, I will miss this small town. My early Sunday morning photo shoots around the town and nearby places will be missed. I hope one day to return and check out how the town may have changed.
So I thought why not put together a series of videos that captured the memories of Ban Chang. This video is part one in the series.
I hope you enjoy watching, as much as I enjoyed selecting and editing the pictures to make up the film.
Until the next part in the series, Keep Shooting.
