In 1990 I took six months off work and travelled west from East Timor through Indonesia, Malaysia up to northern Thailand. Having now scanned the 40 rolls of film I took, I've decided to upload some shots from my last weeks in Bangkok.

A street kid, lost in a world of his own, stares at the Chao Phraya River as it flows through central Bangkok.

In a city landscape of steel and concrete, the pure stance of the young kid manages to give life and positive content to this "reflective" photo.

I do hope time brought some of this kid's dreams to reality. A shot that I just sat and looked at for some time James ... you've captured stillness and absorption within his own world in this shot ... yes you've nailed it!

[] I'm not sure there are many homeless children 'without a worry in the world'. I would have thought that the constant worry of where the next meal is coming from or where they'll spent the night would never be far from any street kid's thoughts. But perhaps you are right, and his day dreams may well be the best moments in his life.

[] Thanks for the comment Lorraine and I'm pleased that my photo caught your attention and got you thinking.

[] By god you're right James. I mistook "street kid" and didn't realise he was/is homeless.
So my new comment is... poor little bugger. I sure hope he is rescued by a decent person who will do him no harm.
Hugs for him and for you, Mal

[] No problems Mal. I thought you couldn't have read my description (or misread it). In very different circumstances it could have been a sweet shot of a young boy without a care in the world. Unfortunately, for some life's a lot harder.
