Bangkok Through My Eyes

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 29, 2015, 10:34 AM
I recently saw an excellent journal, (I don't exactly remember whose it was), It was about trying to convey the reality of a city, beyond its architecture and usual tourism images by words and images.  It was a wonderful journal and inspired me to attempt the same.  I have just come back from a small business trip to Bangkok.  I have been to Bangkok quite a few times and I thought I could attempt something similar from my collection of images of Bangkok.  I searched and thought and tried to materialize the idea.  I found myself miserably lacking in being able to put together anything that could construe what Bangkok is like.

For me a city, a place, a country is defined by its people and then by the environments, Its defined by human interaction, by scents and aromas, by sounds and tastes and so many intangibles that one could write a thousand books and one could show a million images, but they could not even begin to the experience of just a single day there or perhaps Bangkok is simply so magical that it defies definition is just words and images.

So rather hesitant to waste all the thinking and collation of my images, I simply decided to share a modicum of Bangkok with my friends.  For those that have been there, it will bring back over powering and vivid memories and for those that havnt instill a curiosity to imbibe the enchantment of the people and the land. 

(Do forgive my liberty of including some pictures of other places in Thailand beyond Bangkok)

Like every other means of expression, photography, if it is to be utterly honest and direct, should be related to the life of the times – the pulse of today.
