A girl with hand-made flower garlands for sale and a tramp sharing a piece of pavement (taken from a taxi while waiting at yet another red traffic light).
More flower sellers, this time outside a Buddhist temple. You buy a flower and some josticks from them, then present them in the temple as an offering.
In addition to the many beautiful temples in Bangkok (more in next posting), there are also small shrines throughout the city where people stop to pray.
Another woman presenting offerings at a shrine. Note that most of the people are wearing yellow shirts. These are special commemorative shirts to honour King Rama IX's 60th anniversary on the throne.
Another stationary taxi shot. Look closely and you'll see the woman riding pillion has a small baby in her arms!
Man selling prints of the Royal Family past and present, but mostly past.
This woman was positioned at the entrance to a temple and was selling plastic bags full of live fish and toads. We didn't buy any.
A blind busker on the way to MBK, playing a home-made stringed instrument. I wish I could remember how it sounded, but I gave him some money for the photo anyway. Note the judicious use of the omni-present plastic garden furniture.
