Patpong 'Hooker' by Cvail73

I saw this girl in Patpong, the red light district of Bangkok at night. She was crocheting something red.
Americans call crochet ‘hook’, hence ‘hooker’. No idea about her job – another proof that it’s so easy to make assumptions. Think twice when you read the titles of photos…

It all started when I was about 8 when my brother received a camera as a present. It fascinated me, and a year later, I won a basic camera for holiday work at school. The virus was inoculated.
I had my first SLR 18 years ago, went staight for the darkroom at Uni but decided that staying up all nights was not a good idea so I restricted myself to only taking photos after a while. I quickly jumped on the digital bandwagon and loved it straight away..

    this is a great shot. just one question, how did this make the black and white photography group? just wondering. im kindof glad it did, i like this picture.

    Andrew, here’s what the black and white photography groupsays for acceptation: ‘This group displays black and white photography, but soft toned photography (duo tones) is also accepted’. So this one was a soft tone. The wool was bright red in reality :)

    Oh you sly dog you. From now on I shall think twice about image titles (and those of my own) from now on. Lesson learned!

  • I could not resist you see ;)

    I like the voyeuristic feel of this photo – you don’t know her, she doesn’t know that you are there… great shot!
