A flower and vegetable market in Bangkok, Thailand.
A woman makes flower garlands on a sidewalk in Bangkok, Thailand. Garlands (Thai: Phuang Malai) are bought for different purposes, such as for good luck, safety, or for offerings at Buddhist shrines and temples.
A salesman looks at his phone in a special display booth for a brand of men’s denims in a Bangkok mall, Thailand. Bangkok malls and Bangkok “sois” (alleys) are very different experiences, showing the many facets of this city.
