Streets of Bangkok

Streets of Bangkok -- Photo-series by Parvez Shaikh
Last updated:

I entered the world of photography in late 2016 at a time when I had never thought of buying a camera. After leaving my professional life behind, I started to travel when I had no clue what to do with my life. I bought a Canon 1300D camera and carried it along everywhere I went.

Since my first trip to Kutch, Gujarat with my camera, I have continued to dig deeper into photography. After trips to UAE, Nepal, and Bhutan, I learnt that I am more interested into people and their stories.

After Bhutan, I visited Bangkok — a city I believe is a heaven for street photography (and street food, of course). Still in my early days of photography, I walked around the streets of Bangkok, trying to overcome the shyness and hesitance with approaching people or shooting them candid.

The city helped me open up in many ways and it’s also where I bought my first lens — a Canon 50mm — after having realised my love for street and portrait photography.

In this photo-series, I am sharing some of the pictures I clicked in the streets of Bangkok at a time when I was new to this fascinating world of photography. There was no theme, no perspective, and no technical knowledge involved — just the love for photography.
