Colours of Bangkok

18 11 2010

As with many other living parts of Asia, there is much to catch the eye wandering around the streets of Asia’s City of Angels, Bangkok. There certainly is a lot more to the city than the abundance of well photographed sights and scenes that the city provides, which often jump out at you without having to strain the eye. Bangkok is a city where there is in fact no shortage of wonderful colours and textures that not just add to the colour of the city, but also brings the city to life …

Hi Jerome, these are lovely shots. When I was in Bangkok, I enjoyed tasting the banana fritters from a cart near the Chao Praya River. The Thai fritters are different
from our goreng pisang – fried in thinner slices and sprinkled with sesame seeds. Did you try them?

Thanks Sharifah! 🙂 Didn’t get a chance to try the banana fritters this time … but did get a lot of the delicious street food down – including the sweet corn in the photo! 😀

Love these shots. Great use of color, patterns, and DOF. I really like the soft drinks – never thought to see them like that through a camera!
