“Sniper Dog” Photograph


Looks like the recoil from this sniper dog’s rifle has sent it flying backwards.

I’m not sure why some of these street dogs end up wearing clothes. They are perhaps “semi-pets” but free to roam as they wish and spend their lives outside but even the coolest nights in the middle of the cool season should not really be a problem for a street dog in Bangkok.

Some perhaps acquire shirts as a way to stop them scratching at fleas or mange but it’s hard to believe this would ease either the torment or the condition.

Or maybe it’s just a fashion statement.

And who is going to argue with her?

“Year of the Snake” Photograph


A young Thai boy slithering into the Chinese Year of the Snake. His rubber cobra actually had quite a realistic wriggle as he carried it along.

Happy New Year (a few days late).

“Taxpayer” Photograph


Perhaps the Tax Office give her a rebate for the free campaign advertising. But then why would be in English here in Thailand?

More likely, the design and cost of the shirt were far more important then the content.

“Walldog” Photograph


To me it almost looks like the dog in this photograph was somehow stuck to a wall and is now getting nervous about slipping down.

I had never seen a dog in this spread-legged position before I came to Thailand but it seems to be the fashion amongst the country’s street dogs, perhaps as a cooling aid.

“Large Doll” Photograph


Walking around Thai markets where stallholders often have to bring their children along, I regularly see young kids latched onto mannequins like this. At first sight it looks a bit like the mannequin is acting as a surrogate mother but it’s probably truer to say that it’s just an enormous doll to play with.
