The Tuk Tuk Driver

 

Relaxed isn't in it, seen on the streets of Bangkok.

The last of the street scenes for now.

It looks like he's playing with his Nintendo Game Boy, Les! grin No wonder he doesn't have any customers.

Actually, these vehicles still intrigue me every time I see them running around here in Amsterdam. One day I will hail one down, just to say I rode one. smile
Les Auld: He was just ignoring anyone who came near him, matbe he had worked his alloted hours for the day. Appreciate the comment Ginnie.

Another nice view of Bangkok. What intrigues me of the place is the always present jumble of wires as in the background here.

Tuk Tuk driving is hard work. You can see the man needs a rest smile Some of those I took in Bangkok doubled up as pimps, making me wonder about the city's name grin also making me wonder about tourists.
Les Auld: The electricity supply and sitribution network did seem a bit haphazard and grew organically as someone built a new building.

The taxi drivers also behaved in the same way, trying to get you to go to their friends shop or something similar.
Very nice shot Les. Well spotted
Les Auld: Thanks Richard.

Don't suppose he gets a lot of chances to put his feet up. Well seen Les.
Les Auld: It's a tough world in the Tuk Tuk business Bill, thanks for the comment.
These street shots have been excellent. This is another great capture. (:o)
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, I think they do give a view of life in Bangkok, I'll sort out a few more sometime in the future.
My congratulations by this motorized series of the streets of Bangkok. Colors and scenes full of activity!
Les Auld: Thanks Jose, appreciate your congratulations, I enjoyed posting them.
