Kids on the Bridge

Newer Older

Here is my longboat captain flying under a bridge in back canals of Thailand at 50 knots. After I pass, the kids go diving wantonly into our wake.

This was certainly a rip-roaring ride and not for the faint of heart. We went off the main river in Bangkok and found ourselves deep into a series of canals surrounded by collapsing metallic homes and colorful happy kids. I didn’t get a chance to ask any of them if they had an XBox Live account. This longboat only cost a few US dollars to rent for a few hours, but you can’t put a price on seeing a variety of dead mammals and mutated pachyderms floating down the river beside you.

Thanks for all the comments on my stream. Here are Your Favorite shots from my stream. And here is Page 2 Thanks again!

    There is absolutely no way you were going 50 knots.

    Fantastic, superb, ... the blue 'pepsi' from the canopy is great.

    Ecparker - I bet if he COULD go 50 knots he would! You need to experience the sheer terror of a Tuk-Tuk or longboat ride in Thailand (Bangkok in particular!) to understand that ;-)

    Trey I like the way you captured the casual pose of the driver, despite the fact that he was weaving through half submerged debris at a "virtual" 50 knots! - It really gives the feel!

    Great shot, I enjoy flickr because of everyones photos, they allow you to see things, places and other people that some of us wouldn't have the chance to see. Thanks for the opportunity to observe places and people from other parts of the world, keep up the great work.

    Great shot. The "Large on Black" is pretty small. Or maybe it's my eyes.
