    *note number 2: can a moderator move this post to the Photojournalism board?*

    EDIT: photos fixed

    near Sangkhla Buri in the central-west region of
    Thailand (within miles of Thai-Burma border), over a
    period of two days in the area (arriving at noon,
    leaving at noon the next day), there's a small town
    where a hospital is located, probably the only
    hospital in the entire area, with a few buildings
    built near and around it (one in particular that we
    stayed at), i was with a guy on a weeklong documentary
    shoot in Bangkok, Tsunami-hit area of Phuket, and
    finally this region before i had to get back to the
    U.S. for school (he and another went on for a week), i
    did mostly microphone work and still photography in
    this location (in Bangkok i did mostly video, in
    Phuket half video half B&W still photog)... only shot
    42 photos on two rolls of Fujifilm Superia 400, all
    but 3 turned out, no filters, with my manual Minolta
    SRT-101 and a wide-angle prime lens (only lens i
    brought), no post work

    couple of hours in the hospital...

    moved on to a mental illness place which freaked me
    out, there was a pig squeeling the whole time and it
    gave the place a weird atmosphere...

    after a good 45 minutes or so (at least, it seemed
    that long, probably only 30min) hit the road, well,
    hit a dirt path in a truck, and went to a little area
    these people we were interviewing worked at
    occasionally, seemed like a location straight out of a
    Vietnam movie

    the next day in the morning we shot lots of video at
    the hospital, afterwhich began a long 7 hour drive
    back to Bangkok, but before we really left the region,
    the previous day we had worked out a possible
    interview with an Australian lady, she picked the area
    so our driver headed in that direction, another small
    village, where she worked to help at a particular
    school (or something like that)

    after 20 minutes or so there, we hop back into the van
    and head on with one stop on the way back to Bangkok,
    the Bridge on the River Kwai and a nearby cemetary,
    now a tourist destination of sorts

    and that's that, later that night i got back into
    Bangkok, took a much needed shower, ate dinner, got in
    a cab and went to the airport and flew back

    You did an excellent job. These images totally give me a feel for the area and the daily routine of these people. Photojournalism at its finest. :thumbup:

    Well done!

    You should really be proud of this series, it was tough to get through the first few for me, which just means you hit the nail on the head with these. A very humbling series indeed.
