Shot at Chalom Pier in Ban Laem, Thailand.
After walking through the residential area, I arrived at the ferry landing. I had to cross the river to change a train. Some locals waited there. So I came in on the tail end. In the meantime, a passenger ferry came to the pier. The Ta Chin river which I wanted to cross was not so wide. The opposite side of the river looked near. So it was not difficult to span a bridge here. However, there were no bridges for the pedestrians and the automobiles, neither.
Along with the locals, I went on board the passenger ferry. The ferry was used as the form of transportation not only for the train passengers but also for the locals. It was filled up in a matter of seconds. And it left shore soon. It started to head for the opposite side of the river within a breath. The man in this photo was the driver of the ferry. He piloted busily. I thought he worked his trousers to the bone while crossing the river.
