Shot at the market in Mae Klong, Thailand.
The staffs in this market worked in a relaxed way. The man in this photo worked in the same way. A tray was placed on his knee and he emptied a plastic bag with a cigarette in the corner of his mouth. His face was so happy that I felt as if I could hear his hum. The chili peppers were being piled on the tray in a moment. He would display it in the storefront.
The circumstance about smoking in this country also became threatening. It is prohibited to smoke in any buildings. Although the convenience stores sell cigarettes, the goods were hidden not to be seen by the customers. So I thought they didn't have at first. And the grotesque picture was printed on the package. The day that it is prohibited to smoke in all over the country is probably close.
