Isan Street Party Faces
I am constantly amazed at the number of people who come up to me when I am involved in a street party to have their photo taken. Often it starts with a couple of kids and next things you’ve got half the crowd involved. This post is a pictorial one only to showcase some of the shots I have captured.
These photos have been taken over the current street party season, mostly Bun Bang Fai in May/June and more recently. There are a few of my family mixed in but the majority are unknowns. The funny thing is that the whole point for the subjects is to get their faces recorded, they then have a quick look and are off. There’s no permanence required.
I know my memory of Austalia has faded somewhat after six years away but I don’t recall groups of attractive young girls lining up to have their photo taken by me when I lived there. I’m sure it was happening all the time but has just slipped from my aging mind.
