    Photos from the Red Shirt gathering.

    Don't want to turn this into a political comment about the red shirts, but today i had to walk right through where they were to take my son somewhere he wanted to go.

    So being me, I took my camera along.

    There's a carnival atmosphere, they seem to be enjoying their moment in the sun.

    He was a bit intimidated, the speeches at the time were very personal against Aphisit.

    Basically saying that he's really English, Born, bred and educated, having a go at the UK Government for removing Thaksin's visa. Basically the Nationalist Card being played.

    The crowd booed every mention of England. He can understand it all and wasn't impressed.

    Camera, lens? Guessing at least 200mm for the candid close ups.

    The underlying red sentiment is very clear. If a strong leader is not around to pick up the pieces in the aftermath, it could go any way.

    Actually I've sent the link to my friend who works for Reuters but in all honesty they have plenty of their own people with a lot more time to take better pictures. The subject is stationary and accommodating, it wasn't hard, all taken on just a walk from Chitlom BTS to Platignum and back.

    Ahh what the hell....the Army had us surrounded and they were taken whilst under heavy fire....

    It's essentially a pro body and all the lenses are Canon L series which are pro level.

    Probably explains why the pics look professional.

    It is a myth that top cameras will produce top pics out of the box, you do need to know how to use them, in fact they can produce much more shit when handled wrongly.

    I'm still learning.

    Bob, I think you are being overly modest. You have a keen eye for people shots. It is clear.

    Mrs. TG tells me the monks in the pictures are not genuine but are red shirt phonies made to look like the real thing ?
    Tells me monks cannot go to this type of political gathering ?

    Great photos! I've enjoyed a few walks amongst the Reds and have been quite impressed by the good will and beauty to be found there. This contrasts quite dramatically with the ugliness of the writing about the Reds to be found in government-sponsored news media and non-government based news organizations writing under constant threat of censorship by the Abhisit machine. Also of note is the voracity of anti-Red farang posting on the Visa-based websites who sit for hundreds of hours in front of their computer screens fuming, yet never take the time to take the skytrain down to Chidlom and exchange a few smiles and pleasantries with Thais in the Red movement.
