One month of living in Thailand is gone and we have done a lot of photos that we would like to share with you. We have decided to challenge ourselves every month doing a photo assignment. In November we have taken photos of people reading. Either on books or electronic devices. These are the best photographs that we have selected this month.

    What a lovely idea for a post! I bet it’s one of those things you don’t really notice (because it’s so normal) until you go seeking it and from then on see all the time.

      You are right, Bethaney… the more we train our eyes, the more inspiring and amazing things we see around us :)

    Great photos!
    In Thailand, it amazed me to see how everyone had smart phones and tablets.. even street vendors (just like we see here in your pics).
    Grilling street food on one hand, reading the news (or probably facebook) on the ipad on the other.. pretty cool! 😉

      Thank you, Zara :)
      Here the devices seem to be “kids friendly”, as you can see a small child tapping a tablet so often.
      Talking about reading while doing something else, here is so normal that people are having calls and checking iphones while driving a motorcycle!!

    I’ve just found your blog and in this collection you’ve really captured the essence of every day Thailand life. I live in Chiang Mai and am working on developing my photo skills. I’ve come to realise that my small village provides so many wonderful photo opportunities I could fill an art gallery! I’ll be keeping an eye on you. James

      Thanks, Ahimsa. We’ve been running kind of series for a while, they are just not regular :) Check the Photography category on the top of the main page, subcategory “Photo Essays”.
      Hope all is fine by you back in Portland :)
      Cheers!
