Water wars and toy cameras

After escaping Bangkok’s blistering April heat for Europe 5 consecutive years, I finally caught a glimpse of the Songkran (Thai new year) water mayhem in the city’s backpacking district of Khao San rd… I enlisted the help of a plastic waterproofish toy camera and some black & white film. That same morning I had just picked up one of my best mates at the airport … 12 hour flight form Paris , no mercy, I took him straight to the heart of the fighting.

Ibiza, eat my heart out… Foam galore in the heart of Khao San…

A bit of peace and quiet after the war… A novice monk sweeps the ground at a nearby temple. Nice vespa…
