Bangkok on B/W film

Posted in Life, Places, thailand, Tourism on Saturday, January 5, 2008 by Colin Quek

Decided to try out Ilford’s Black/White film for my 2nd trip to Thailand. Was pretty surprised at film’s ability to handle some of the exposure extremes I encountered. Technology at its best – Capturing the human spirit and life!

Most of my shots are taken under the harsh noon sun. As evident of this shot:
This little girl was walking beside but for a split second I managed to set her alone against the background.

Street stalls are common sight in Bangkok. Where else can one find the nicest, cheapest food, and so conveniently located.


A restaurant I frequent for my lunch, the writing on the wall says “Welcome”


Rice with Egg for 15 Baht, that’s like $0.70 in Singapore


I counted 5 different types of fried insects on sale here


There are also accessories on sale


As always, the Land of Smiles


I finally got up close with one of the motorcycle taxi riders
Morning comes and the street is still full of live. The bustle of clearing up after a night of trading and feasting. And of cause stocking up goods for another night of merchandising.
