River Rush Hour in Bangkok


Shot with the ever-lovely XC 15-45mm

I’ve been trying to get a shot of these guys for awhile now but I always have either the wrong lens or I’m in a bad place. Today I managed to not be in the way and in a spot to capture one of the Bangkok boat taxi attendants.

They stand at the rear of the boat and blow obnoxiously loud whistles to communicate with the boat driver. As the boat approaches the dock from the rear, they hop off, attach the rope, and wait for passengers to disembark.

And once everyone’s found their places, they remove the rope and hop right back on again!

I mean, these are pictures of a pretty mundane event but I love the energy of his body language, the intensity of the sun, and how nicely it all comes together in Monochrome.
