“Numbers Game” Photograph

As gambling is illegal in Thailand the official lottery is a very popular alternative. This man is probably scanning for numbers that have some relevance to him before buying a ticket – perhaps a birthday or car registration or the numbers a monk gave him when he requested them.

A high proportion of the sellers are wheelchair-bound as selling lottery tickets is one of the few jobs available to them.
