proper photos today.
15 snapshots taken in phuket town a couple of weeks ago.
it is a lovely old town with lots of colour and lots of character.
a little van i spotted outside a coffee shop.
this would be my ideal company vehicle, though i'd probably
prefer it in a bright orange colour.
i always like to photograph postboxes when i'm overseas.
there's always something interesting about them to me.
then again i like postboxes in the uk too.
street art ?
some petals in a bowl outside a shop
some kid really enjoying his drink.
extravagant door handles.
grrr ! i really want a chihuahua.
this one was on guard like a boss
maybe i should have done a closer up shot but these weighing scales
were so beautiful. all in bright colours with interesting details on the faces.
a lady selling pineapples and bananas on the street.
i love thai writing.
have you ever watched the lady in the thai restaurant write down your order ?
you say "one chicken mussaman" and she writes these really nice letters
with squiggles and things on them.
it always impresses me
( as does a chicken mussaman )
what i'm trying to show with these photos is that phuket town was
a lovely little place full of colour
( and coffee shops with wi-fi )
wait a minute...
nice warm light, thai writing and a gap on the right hand side...
can you guess what's coming next ?
how do you like me now ?
i've just tried telling you what a great place it was.
it was sunny and warm. lots of friendly people, coffee shops and wi-fi
and still i manage to look miserable.
