“Masked Tong Lady” Photograph

Sifting through other people’s rubbish is a good reason to wear a mask even on a hot Bangkok afternoon but it does give her the look of a bandit. Imagine being confronted by her down a dark street at night with her tongs threateningly poised. Weaponry like this could probably cause a nasty injury so it would be best to hand over all your recyclables without a struggle. Although being Thai, underneath the mask she would probably still be smiling good-naturedly.

Photograph taken at Chatuchak Weekend Market, Bangkok, Thailand
