  1. Another fabulous collection Jeff. Makes me want to go back to Bangkok. I especially love the opening shot. I still haven’t figured out how to do that, though I’ve been trying.

  2. Superb set of Bangkok snapshots Jeff! The opening shot is my pick as well. Like Alison, my panning skills require a lot more work :/

    • Thank you Madhu. I could pan motorbikes all day long. You never know what you are going to get until after the shot is over. There is just a certain sweetness in the woman’s eyes that I like, plus no one has a helmet and the kid is riding up front. I probably take 10 blurry panning shots for ever good one.

  3. Ditto what Alison and Madhu said! And the plane photo is kind of scary – what’s the story there?

    • Evidently, they put the planes in a vacant field in a Bangkok suburb. Squatters now live in them. When I go back in the fall, I’m going to try and take some photos inside if possible. It is a strange sight for sure.

  4. Ditto what Alison and Madhu and Lex said. And what I’m hoping you’re going to tell me is that woman is putting a spider, or cockroach into that bowl…right? Love the one with the lady and the mask and the fan and the TV on the sidewalk…so third world. I’m half expecting a bear-spray story next, dude?

    • Unfortunately, I don’t think she was putting anything interesting into the bowl. I just snapped it and wasn’t sure what I got until later. It is mostly out of focus but I like it anyway.

      I composed the photo of the lady on the sidewalk and she spun around right as I snapped it. I think the eye contact adds to it, but it was unexpected.

  5. I feel as though I can hear the noise from the streets. As to Badfish if there is bear spray in Bangkok that will be quite the blog post!

  6. Wonderful captures from Bangkok! Much more interesting seeing the local daily life than seeing a photo from a turist attraction or monument.

    • Thank you Peta. Thailand and I are a natural fit. I am excited to get back there after the summer and shoot more photos!

      • Must be like me and Viet Nam. Or me and Sri Lanka. Funny how we humans just have natural fits in some places.


  7. Beautiful series, Jeff, so full of life 🙂

    The cover image is truly top class action shot 🙂

    Thanks a lot for sharing 🙂

      • I have seen many a stunning images from Thailand and I think, I should definitely plan a trip 🙂

        Have a nice day ahead, Jeff 🙂

  8. Hi Jeff, I think this gallery is brilliant! If at all possible, I’d love to share a link to it on my site? We share quality posts through an online travel mag platform, so we display an image from the post and a short excerpt with a linkback to this page, check out the homepage and let me know what you think!



    • Marc,

      Yes, you are more than welcome to share a link. Thank you. I checked out your site – looks like a cool concept.
