Upon hearing that I was going to travel to SE Asia during the summer months, many of my friends in Canada said the same thing: it'll be the rainy season. But I was born and raised in soggy Vancouver so I simply shrugged my shoulders and laughed at their warnings.
As you can see from this photograph, taken in the Khao San (backpackers' ghetto) area of Bangkok, the rains were, indeed, quite fierce while I was there. I had to stand in a foot of water under an awning in order to get this shot. The photograph was taken with my trusty Olympus OM2n using Ilford Delta 400 film.

Nice shot Laucas
it's great in B&W. You have captured the atmosphere well. Maybe if you had gotten closer to the guy walking or had him (or someone) a bit more in the foreground it would have improved the shot;there is maybe a bit too much blank space in the foreground.
But really a good shot i like it alot well done.

Great! well done, great choice on film. And the OM2n especially, a real workhorse.
Thanks for sharing
