Bangkok is a city of smiles, and people are generally very open to being photographed there. I have a tendency to shoot street photography while obscuring people’s faces, for both privacy and future-use rights, although in this case it could be argued that even with his face obscured, he’s still recognizable due to the tattoos.
He was very friendly and approached me when he saw me shooting, and his friend helped to “pose” him (arranging his shirt and hat) for the photo.
Amazing place, Thailand.
That tattoo didn’t end there…
