Shot at Samphanthawong District in Bangkok, Thailand.
The shops were shuttered. Yet many locals were sitting on the sidewalk. They were not waiting for the stores to open. They were just hanging out and relaxing there. Most of them were sitting on the chair and talking with the acquaintances. Apparently, the place functioned as a place for social interaction for the locals.
Both the men and the women enjoyed the gossip session. I wondered whether they stayed there even the shops were open. If all the shops opened, they became excrescences.
