    Not my work but a pretty dramatic insight into Bangkok's back streets and some quite superb images.

    Re: Asian Images

    Occasionally, I stumble over ignorant foreigners who make me aware of the fact that there are still unused areas in Bangkok, like canals and parks, that could be used for roads, making room for even more cars in this city. Removing those foreigners from Bangkok, along with McDonalds, KFC, 7Eleven and a few other establishments would probably be a better idea, to make room for more water and more boats.

    Here are some more recent images from China. I haven't really had any 'traditional' good light but something about the diffused haze here really fits my style.

    I find it fascinating that in communist Vietnam, the parasols protecting the traffic police from the elements are sponsored by commercial vendors

    When wandering around among thousands of tourists, it's easy too forget that the temples in the Angkor area are still very much places of religious significance.

    There are places in this world that are so different from other locations that it's difficult to leave, simply out of fear that it will not be there when the possibility to return arises. Kampong Chnang is such a place. Simply out of this world.

    Jorgen, You have got a wonderful collection of images from this part of the

    world.

    ReeRay' s contributions to the thread shows me the opportunities that

    await photogs if one is lucky enough to travel and or live in such magical

    places.

    I am thoroughly enjoying this thread. Thank you for starting it and

    keep it going. And to the others for their input.

    Thank you for your kind words, Rayyan. Hopefully, I will be able to travel around in this part of the world for many years still, but I would also like to take a few trips across the ocean to see more of your part. My only visit so far didn't leave much time to see anything but cars driving around in circles.

    Re: Asian Images

    Where are we going?, I asked.

    You said dinner sir. I know of an excellent place. Said Ari.

    Hotel, room service, Ari.

    You will love this place sir, continued Ari. Pure pampering.

    Private dining rooms sir. With a small pool. With Lotus flowers and leaves.

    Why?, I asked.

    To cover yourself sir..the leaves.

    Hotel Ari, I said. We start early tomorrow 0500 hrs.

    You are very quite sir. Said Ari, a little concerned.

    Not quite Ari, I said.

    A little sad. I continued.

    Miss home sir?

    No Ari. Sad that you hold such a low opinion of me.

    0500 hrs Ari, I said getting down.

    Last week was the time for Bang Saen Speed Week, the 2011 edition, postponed from November last year due to flooding. To give some relief to a world that apparently suffers from a severe cap shortage, the good people from Pizza Company and Liqui Moly handed out a truckload for free.

    This was some 15 years ago. I stayed in Yangshuo and rented a bicycle to go to XingPing. Then hitchhiked with a boat back down to Yangshuo. Absolutely spectacular either way. Looking forward to seeing more photos from the area.

    There was this big, big Songkran celebration in Pailin today, just north of the mountains along the Thai/Cambodian border. There were thousands of people singing and dancing, praying and eating. Then there was this little boy who had a little plastic bag with some pink stuff. It's strange what catches one's attention sometimes.
