Shot at Chatuchak Market in Bangkok, Thailand.
It was cloudy since morning. And it started to rain finally during walking around the market. It was September and Thailand was the rainy season. It rained so heavy that I had to take shelter from the rain in a storefront. At first, I thought it stopped soon. I waited impatiently for stopping, but it didn't stop. So I watched the people moving under the roof to avoid the rain with absent air.
Although most of the people had their own umbrella, they walked under the passage covered by the roof. It rained so heavy. Yet there were some people crossing the passage under the heavy rain. The family in this photo was one of them.
Two adults and two children walked together. However, only one umbrella was with them. Being soaking wet, they crossed the passage in the market. Yet they seemed happy. To visit the market was out-of-the-ordinary. And to be soaking in the out-of-the-ordinary world might be also what was fun to be for them.
