Photographer's Note

Some place outside Bangkok's amulet market. thsis is a common sight to spot someone checking his newly acquired amulet with a loupe. Is it powerful enough to cast away bad fortunes and attract a better luck?

The amulet market is one of the places I often go back in Bangkok. This is where the supertitious side of the thai soul is at peak level, something that might be totally odd to us cartesian souls. It is said that the amulet market attracts people prone to live through hazardous environments, be it professionally or...

At least, you'll be sure to spot some quite typical characters down there. Next time in Bangkok, have a go, if you don't know it already.
