Many thanks for all the votes and kind comments on my recent upload.

This latest ofering is something I've thought about uploading for a while, it is a series of images of street vendors plying their trade in and around Bangkok. Food and goods are often taken around on hand trolleys or carried across the shoulder on a yoke. Others set up impromptu stalls balancing a board on a couple of stools – whenever and wherever there is an opportunity for a making a sale, it is taken.

Many of these images were captured in difficult circumstances as the bustling crowds passed by and people got in the way, but with a mixture of frustration and patience the shots were gathered and hopefully they give a flavour of to what many of us is a very different way of life. I hope that you will find them of interest.

V1. A fish seller makes a sale in Yoawarat Road, Chinatown.

V2. Also in Chinatown but this time in Charoen Krung Road, a fruit seller shares a joke with a passer-by.

V3. This purveyor of barbecued meats appears to be a little sleepy as she waits for her next customer. This was taken near Ratchawong Pier on the Chao Praya River.

V.4 This colourful character is preparing his flowers in a busy side street in Nonthaburi, a provincial capital outside Bangkok.

V5. Selling soft toys from a tray slung around her neck, this young lady was captured in the bustling area of Pratunam, known throughout Bangkok as a centre for wholesale clothing.

V.6 This image was taken from across the road on a visit to the Din Daeng area of Bangkok, located on the Thonburi side of the Chao Praya River. We took the ferry across and spent over two hours exploring, during which we didn’t see another Occidental face. Needless to say we were figures of curiosity as we made our way round the area.

V7. With her tray of rings set up on some stools, this street vendor takes a snack break. This shot was taken in the back-packer haven of Khao San Road.

V8. Here are some more flower sellers in Nonthaburi, preparing their arrangements.

V9. Fruit sellers prepare their stalls in a side street leading off Surawong Road – the young boy peering through the bananas on the left amused me with his expression.

V10. Taken in the Chit Lom area, this young man was doing a fine trade knocking out mussel omelettes.

V11. Here a street vendor squats by the pavement in the Wang Lang area as she prepares papaya salad, known locally as som tam. She is pounding the ingredients into mulch using a pestle and mortar.

I particularly like V1-V4-V6-V8 - I think these would have been good standalone images. I am never too sure how much time some people spend appreciating collections such as this.Perhaps another day you could post a few singles from these.

Good cross section Alan see you have "my friend" at No 4 .. I have so many of him he fascinated me so "butch" but happily working with his orchids. Often see him as he comes around on my screen savers along with all the other colourful sights of Bangkok incl. Trish laughing at the so called guinea pigs that turned out to be rabbits..

Hi - this really takes me back to our visit to Thailand - the smells, colours, hustle and bustle of the streets. We will be going again, probably Christmas 2009 to see our friend - we went in June last year - it was the rainy season - there was a massive thunder storm over the airport and it took the 777 three attempts to land!!! Never again! Jude.

I think this is an excellent series of photo journalistic pictures and is very effective in illustrating these people and their daily working activities. Lots of interesting characters too - in particular the flower seller in No. 4. I'd say he'd be an interesting guy to talk to. The lady in No. 6 is also quite amusing - 'nothing doing today'. This is the first time I have given a 'User Award'.

All the best for 2009.
