*Over the Bridge*
Fuji TX2 (XPAN) + Fuji Velvia 100
They say that slide is not very good at resolving broad dynamic range, and they are right. Still, sometimes the deep shadows look interesting, and the highlights are not too blown. The magenta cast of the Velvia is out in force here, but I find the result interesting enough.
Canal Grocery Store
Fuji x100f, 35mm, f/8, 1/250s, ISO 500
There’s a whole parallel economy going on on the canals of Bangkok. More often than not it seems you’re not going to the grocery store, the grocery store is coming to you. But they’ve got to stock up somewhere…
Will the clothes dry?
Fuji X-Pro2, 50mm, f/5.6, 1/500s, ISO 1250
I’m kind of fascinated with canal side living. We saw a lot of dingy habitat alongside the Mekong in Vietnam, and things are no different in Bangkok proper. You can’t help wonder about the hygiene and the humidity (in countries where humidity is a problem everywhere) and yet there’s something fascinating about this entirely different way of living to the one we’re used to in the west.
The Front Door
Fuji x100s, 35mm, f/8, 1/60s, ISO 1000
I have an unwavering fascination with doors, especially when they are ornate or derelict or a mix thereof. I took a lot of photos of doors in Venice, most of them half-rotten canal doors. This one probably is the most representative, but I may do a « door » series in the not too distant future.
