Although it was a daily ceremony for the local shopkeepers in the Mae Klong Railway market, it was an uncommon experience to see the train running through the market for the tourists. When the announcement was made in the market, the tourists started to grow restless. The moment which they wanted to see was coming. All of them brought a camera out and waited for the moment.
When the train came into Maeklong Railway Market, they started to take photos altogether. They seemed to do their utmost to leave with memories of this trip. Some people took a selfie.
When I took photos while standing in the middle of the railroad tracks, a woman wearing sunglasses appeared just in front of me. And she started to strike a pose with a smile in front of the approaching train. It might be only me who thought the composition had a surreal effect.
