Earlier this year, I was lucky enough to go to Thailand for 10 days. I’ve spent most of my life either in Europe or the African continent so this was my first time in Asia.
I was a little nervous before I left, as I only speak French and English so I wasn’t sure what to expect and I also have a fear for airports. Not airports as such but more for border controllers. For some reason, each time I travel, they question whether it is me or someone else on the picture. I’m not sure if it’s my face that tend to change every time I travel. As far as I know, I haven’t changed.
But not only the country was pretty amazing but all my expectations were exceeded. Every person we came across were extremely helpful and most of all genuinely kind. It is the type of place where strangers say hi to each other. That is something that I’ve never experienced. Even the people that don’t speak English, take time to listen and help you out.
More than anything else what stood out to me was the large amount of greenery all around. Although I love architecture, I am completely against destroying nature for wealth and especially for oil.
Before I start ranting, here some of images I captured on the 35mm that I brought with me on the journey.
For these images, I used Kodak TriX film 400. From what I heard about this film I expected something a little different but then again I’m a newbie at film.
