Walking or shopping int he wet market without transport, that's not Thai style. When you walk you sweat and that Thais like most Asians do not like at all. Consequently it can be very narrow in a market, but still a motorbike will wiggle its way through the crowd and stalls. Nonetheless accidents are seldom. This shot I took in the wet market behind Hat Yai's clock tower. There is much more space for motorbikes and it already was passed the morning market rush hour.

Hi Urs. Great capture this time under well lit street. The busyness and all the commotion is so well recorded and the details are well defined. The light and shadow management is very good with well rendered colors from your Olympus sensor. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day shooting. Greetings from wet and rainy Jitra - Jusni

la moto semble être le moyen de transport le plus efficace dans cette région du monde, sur un marché bien évidemment, c'est plus pratique qu'une voiture. Une belle vue riche en couleurs.

nice daily life scene. Like the view of the market with motorbike. A known Indian view in Thailand. Lovely light arrangement using the flash at day to illuminate the darker shops. Beautiful work. Tfs.
