Photo: Rooftop in Bangkok

Launching yet another series of posts, I will be periodically featuring travel photography from my collection that didn’t make the cut from previous blog entries.  As with the In Motion series, it is not because these pictures are inferior to the others, but simply because they didn’t flow well with the theme of previous said blog posts.

With that disclosure out of the way, our first photograph takes us to the chaotic rooftops of Bangkok, Thailand.  This picture was shot from the rooftop of the NapPark hostel, near Khao San Road.  It contrasts greatly with the modern buildings and skyscrapers mere kilometres away in Silom and Siam districts of the city; despite their dilapidated appearance, they emanate a feeling of authenticity and character that is lacking in the colder, more sterile glass and concrete affair in the downtown area.
