A Truck รถบรรทุก Store in Bangkok by Ross Oscar Knight

Thursday, September 29, 2011

I walked past this man every single day that I was in the city. He drove his truck into town at 7 AM and set up shop on the side of the street. After day four I learned how to speak enough Thai to ask him about his small business and to let him know that I was a photographer looking to learn more about the Thai culture. He pointed out a picture of his daughter and late mother that he was proud to display just over his left shoulder. We shared experiences albeit performing charades to understand the meaning of some of our words. I asked him how he was able to sit for hours in the heat in a small truck with his legs crossed. The answer: 'To feed my family is why I work.' 'Doing yoga keeps me healthy.'
