Here’s a follow up to Monk and Motorcycle from a couple posts back. Shot February 15th, 2014 on Santitham Road, above the old city, near where I’m staying. I like this neighborhood a lot, it’s a lively, vibrant area where you hardly ever see tourists (unlike the old city which is lousy with them).
Will be posting Chiang Mai photos soon, but Bangkok KEEPS PULLING ME BACK IN. Almost forgot about this video I shot on a motorcycle taxi that took me to Chinatown, where I shot the photos I posted a few days ago. Regarding the shaky handheld camera work–I was hanging on for dear life with one hand, holding my heavy DSLR with big zoom lens in the other. Next time I’ll hire a dude to sit on my shoulders and hold the camera for me. That ride was one of the funner/scarier things I’ve done in a while.
Update: I meant to mention before, this was speeded up in editing.
Update 2: Here’s a picture of the bike and driver immediately after the ride:
