Fire Starter, Bangkok

Just off the Khlong San Seeb, in Pratu Nam, Bangkok, people start early to prepare food. This sort of a food stall attracts local works from both the nearby offices and the river workers. I don't think they have a hygeine certificate, I could be wrong.

Ticket Please, San Seeb, Bangkok

The Location is the San Seeb Khlong (Canal) that runs through the heart of Bangkok. The Canal Carries over 15,000 people per day and charges an average of 16 baht (about 23 pence) per ticket. As you can see, it's a harzdous occupation working here; equally hazardous for passengers getting on and off. I've seen people go in the water. Any comments or suggestions?

Cropping can be quite interesting. The first picture is cropped in a traditional 1:1.25 ratio (the original is a 10" x 8") while the second picture is a more modern 1:1.41 ratio (297mm x 210mm A4). Which do you prefer? I'm interested to know what format photographers use, especially when using digital cameras.

Solitude

This was originally shot in the early 1980's (I think I was about 16 years old) with a Pentax ME Super. The location was a closed down school campus in Burton On Trent, England.

I printed this originally as a 12" x 8" print and remember struggling with the small size of the developing trays.

It has been scanned and digitised then cleaned up a little bit in photoshop CS2; but mainly this is how it was shot.
