One day in the life of Bangkok as seen by a cyclist on the Bamboo Road Bicycle Expedition.
In the 1980s a series of photography books titled “A Day in the Life of America (or Australia, Spain, Japan, Canada, California, Hawaii, etc)” were published. In fact, they are still available on Amazon today. If my recollection is correct, dozens of professional photographers were told to take a series of photographs on one particular day in one particular country/region. The best pictures were then collected into a book.
I am not a professional photographer, nor did I have enough time to plan what would I photograph and neither did I have all day to take pictures. In addition, I had to work with a cheap digital camera. But for a few hours on our rest day in Bangkok, I was taking pictures and stuffing my camera into people’s faces in order to produce a collection I call “One day in the life of Bangkok as seen by a cyclist on the Bamboo Road Bicycle Expedition“.
Yes, the name is a little long, my lack of talent is showing and Bangkok, a metropolis of eight million people that spreads over an area of 1600 square kms is a rather large subject for one photographer. My collection will certainly not be published in a book but I had fun and I did get to see a whole lot of Bangkok.
