" ...ONLY IN ART DOES IT STILL HAPPEN THAT A MAN WHO IS CONSUMED BY DESIRES PERFORMS SOMETHING RESEMBLING THE ACCOMPLISHMENT OF THOSE DESIRES AND THAT WHAT HE DOES IN PLAY PRODUCES EMOTIONAL EFFECTS - THANKS TO ARTISTIC ILLUSION - JUST AS THOUGH IT WERE SOMETHING REAL. PEOPLE SPEAK WITH JUSTICE OF THE "MAGIC OF ART" AND COMPARE ARTISTS TO MAGICIANS. ..."

Back in Bangkok or Gotham city?


Back in Bangkok or Gotham city?, originally uploaded by Bēn.

Bangkok, known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon or Krung Thep for short, is the capital, largest urban area and primate city of Thailand. It was a small trading post at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River during the Ayutthaya Kingdom and came to the forefront of Thailand when it was given the status as the capital city in 1768 after the burning of Ayuthaya. Bangkok is the world's 22nd largest city by population with approximately registered 8,160,522 residents (July 2007), but due to large unregistered influxes of migrants from the North East of Thailand and of many nations across Asia, the population of greater Bangkok is estimated at nearly 15 million people.

Returning to the capital Bangkok. From our lonely beach on Koh Kood to a Metropole with more than 15 million people. Such a big contrast. Photo taken from a bus window at 1/1300s and ISO 400. It's the so-called Mega Bridge which is part of 13 km long Industrial Ring Road located in Bangkok ´s main industrial area

Bangkok (Thai: กรุงเทพมหานคร, Krung Thep) is de hoofdstad van Thailand. Bangkok is tevens de grootste stad, met 8.160.522 geregistreerde inwoners (juni 2007), het werkelijke aantal ligt op ongeveer 15 miljoen inwoners. De stad is gevestigd op de oostelijke oever van de Menam, dicht bij de Golf van Thailand. Bangkok begon als klein handelscentrum en als haven voor Ayutthaya, dat de hoofdstad was tot het in 1767 door Birma ingenomen en verwoest werd. Bij Thonburi, aan de overkant van de rivier bij Bangkok, werd een tijdelijke hoofdstad gevestigd. In 1782 liet Koning Rama I bij de rivier een paleis bouwen op het eiland Rattanakosin. Hij maakte Bangkok tot hoofdstad, en veranderde de naam in Krung Thep. In het westen wordt echter nog altijd de oude naam van de stad gebruikt.
