Market on the Railway

That looks so strange. I do hope the train doesn't move unexpectedly!

Not to worry, they have been doing this for decades... It was quite a sight, seeing the stall owners make such well-rehearsed adjustments just minutes before the train arrived to get their goods out of harm's way and restore everything as soon as the choo-choo passed. The only "damage" we witnessed during our visit were a few squashed bananas, and more due to the stall owner's slip than the train ;-P

Narelle was a little taken aback by her first close encounter with a train... it certainly left a lasting impression!

Whoa! Looks kinda scary!

But this kind of situation is very common here in the Philippines.. people living near a rairoad.

This is a very nice shot. A great capture.

Here's mine.. Hope you could visit back and drop a comment. Thanks.. =)

I´m fond of traines and you have a very fine frame. It´s so suitable in monochrome. Have a nice week.

I wonder how many accidents a conductor sees in a lifetime. It's got to be incredibly hard.

That's making use of the space!

I read about the market a while ago. In fact, I've been obsessed with Thailand and Thai culture for a few months. I read in your introduction that there is no star on a city night. I happened to see a movie by Ken and Chris Horwang about the metro in Bangkok yesterday. When they were walking at night, Chris pointed at a light saying it is a star while Ken laughed at her for mistaking the light from a building for a star.

Nice photos! You make my longings to travel to Thailand more acute:)
