School's out and this mum's on duty. It's her turn to pick up the kids and get them home safely.

Chanthaburi is in the east of Thailand, near the Gulf of Thailand and not that far from the Cambodia.
It's a small and rather enjoyable small town. It doesn't really have any really remarkable sights, but boasts a nice atmosphere and a few really good places to dream the day away.
It's famous for gem trading. Interaction between locals and the town's Vietnamese community has created a wonderful local cuisine. A joy!

Un ramassage scolaire très original...et peut-être pas très sécurisé. Une photo très intéressante.

This is great, one of the numerous mode of transportation commonly found in Thailand. Brilliant timing, wonderful colours and detail, it's great example of observational and real life street photography. Hopefully they arrive safely....
Great capture, Congrats.

This is a spectacular capture, a "heavy lifting" mother doing one of her numerous daily chores. The composition and timing were excellent!
