    Walking Street, Thailand:

    ___EDIT___

    It never occurred to me that many people may miss the reference and I should have included a bit more background to it.
    The street is very famous (infamous?) and is called "The Walking Street", it is one of the largest red light area in entire Asia. I found this image interesting because this guy was "standing" in the "walking street"; yeah bad joke, I know! :345:

    Pretty cool. Lots going on there; the colors, the sign shapes, wires all over, crazy stuff hanging. I am liking it.

    :lol: That's funny! Thanks Gallagher, that guy was either a Korean or a Japanese tourist. I've added a bit more info about the place too, might be interesting ;)

    :) Thanks Rob, a very busy street it was!

    Great shot, nice colors, how long was your exposition ? I'll be a bit uncomfortable with a tripod and camera in a crowded place at night

    The Exif says "exposure, 6 sec, f/29, ISO 400". :)
    You also may be able to use a monopod if you are steady.

    That reminds me of Wanchai (HK) in the 1970s. :)

    Thanks cauzimme, Gallagher is spot on with the exif. I'm also uncomfortable with a tripod in crowded places, what I do is stand in a corner and wait for five minutes. If you're not moving around too much, it's pretty easy to blend in and most people wouldn't even notice that you're there unless you're blocking there way. And besides, this was walking street, plenty of more weird things than a guy with a tripod :lol:
    Had to google that! :)
    Thanks anna :)
