Bangkok throwback: Bangkok in the 70s by Don Oppedijk

Dutch Photographer Don Oppedijk’s flicker account has got a stash of photographs from the 70s! The city of angels, although recognizable has a whole ‘new’ shade through the lens of Oppedijk.  The busy streets, the street stalls, vendors, markets, river-ways- Don seems to have captured Bangkok in her whole soul. The pulsating life of the city is depicted  beautifully in the frames and we can’t help but be fascinated over them.

Check out for yourself!

I bleed my thoughts on paper. And if I cant find a paper, blogs serve the purpose just fine.
