I have posted some photographs of street life in Thailand here. They were mainly shot in Bangkok.
British barber shops rarely have a traditional red-and-white striped pole outside, harking back to the days of barber surgeons. This Thai barber’s has red, white, blue and gold stripes. Less than £2 for a haircut is good value.
Dogs are often dressed in t-shirts in cold weather. My daughter has a photograph of a small dog wearing a short, trousers and four bootees.
Sex sells, I suppose.
So if you want to add wooden letters or numbers to your door, you go to the wood carving street. Looks rather complicated, doesn’t it?
This corner shop is one of the few places you can watch monks’ begging bowls being made. They are on sale to the general public. I wonder if I bought one and took it back to UK whether I’d have much luck “chugging” (charity mugging) with it outside Waitrose.
The old houses in Chinatown are picturesque. The gutters are filled with overgrown vegetation.
Chinese temple by the roadside was one of the first schools in Bangkok. You can see the workmen fixing up some lighting. I like the dragon-on-a-stick motif.
