    * Cross posted this in Mu-43 since I used both Sony and M43!

    If there was ever a city made for street photography, Bangkok gets my vote. This is where street photographers are born! This city literally puts all your senses at 10 and you can be inserted anywhere in BKK and start shooting away. The moment you hit the streets, you're exposed to overwhelming sights, sounds, smells, people and architecture all thrown together. It's a very visceral city and unlike anything I've experienced before. I melted into the environment walking the streets, consuming the local street food and blending into the endless maze of people.

    You can see the photo set in it's entirety on Flickr

    Shots I posted here are with the Sony A7 II + Voigtlander 15mm 4.5 II + 40mm 1.4 MC Nokton + Techart Pro AF Adapter!

    Sensational! The wide angle perspective really frames the setting very well. The cat photo blew me away. Nice work!

    Thanks! I probably logged a good 20-25 miles of walking through Bangkok! I came back with blisters and calluses, but it was well worth it! Though I did pamper myself a bit by staying at this snazzy Airbnb with a rooftop pool! :p

    Fantastic set! I guess I dont have to go to Bangkok anymore. You took all the good pictures! :D 

    PS, What lens is this? I did a search and only found a 30mm?

    I was adapting a Voigtlander 15mm f/4.5 and 40mm f/1.4 lens. I feel like I only covered a small portion of the city! There's so much happening, it's almost overwhelming. :eek: ;)

    I really immersed myself while I was there. There are so many cool places to shoot there, I could literally shoot everyday and find something new!

    Sweet set, Jonathan ... your default processing is a lovely match for the 'big mango' IMO, I really like that look.
    BTW, I wish I had a better camera when I used to live there back in the early 2000's, but had loads of fun anyways :biggrin: .

    It's amazing how much easier it is to navigate with modern tech. I never felt like I was off the grid in BKK and I was able to navigate the city with ease. Some dudes were trying to scam me and all it took was a Google search to verify their claims were fake! :D

    The shots are only the tip of the iceberg! I wish I could convey the hot weather, smells of all the street food and just the atmosphere in general. What I really liked there was just interacting with people on a daily basis and seeing everyone on the streets. Now that I'm back in Los Angeles, everything feels more compartmentalized and quiet. :D
