    » It took me hours in the air and a day on the road to get this picture of these faithful Buddhist followers in Nubra Valley, situated 150km north of Leh, the capital of Ladakh in India. After a long ride to the remote valley, my efforts immediately paid off. My arrival coincided with the visit of the Dalai Lama. I knew there must be something worth capturing through the lens.

    » Victory Monument is one of the most bustling places in the city. As a major transport junction, it draws heavy crowds during rush hours each day. I am among those people, travelling to the area to make a bus change since my school days until now. But today is different.

These hard-working people play a major role in the ongoing success of Bangkok's biggest trading centre for wholesale flowers, fruit and vegetables.
