Walking Street – Pattaya – Thailand is probably the most exciting street in the world if like to have fun.

We went with our friends. We knew what to expect as we’d been there before.

We are lucky to have friends who live in Pattaya and visited for 2 days. On the first night we went to the famous show.

It’s hard to believe your eyes. The dancers wear beautiful costumes and it’s difficult to tell that they are not girls.

They successfully blend the art of acting, stage design, costumes and sequencing.

There is something about Chiang Mai. It’s laid back, often literally.

People take their time and they have  time for you.

And they smile.

For me, it’s the ideal place for portraits and street photography, especially in the Chinatown area.

On my last morning in Chiang Mai my shoe broke and this wonderful lady fixed it and I’m still wearing it.

In Chiang Mai, Thailand as part of the three-day Flower Festival held during the first weekend in February each year, there are dancing performances on a stage at Thappae Gate, the entrance to the old walled city of Chiang Mai.

Our hotel was only 5 minutes’ walk away, so it was easy to stroll there and walk back home after a wonderful evening’s entertainment.

The singers are young, but their voices are strong, and at a young age are professionals.

Being in the open air, it was easy to join them back stage for some great shots. It was all very colourful but I decided to process these in black and white. We have so much colour in our lives, it can be so overwhelming we don’t even notice or remember it.
