Songkran Day in Bangkok, 2001
With some useful tips for Photographers
Songkran is the new year day by Thai calendar. (13th April every year).
Most exciting tradition is throwing water to other people blessing health. Its really exhilarating experience if you join.
People bring out big jars of water on the street and throw it (with water gun or bowl).
The problem is I have to take the risk wetting my precious photographic equipment.
For instance, people doesn't throw water to the goods in shop.
If you like to take a picture in Songkran day, here are some tip from my experience.
Stay in one place, not chasing the subject.
Do not cover your camera.
You better accept a full bowl of water, top of your head through your toe, so that your clothes got wet enough.
The last but not the least, pray before you go out.
Here are the pictures I took as this.
See you in Thailand, next Songkran....
