‘Soi dog’ is the Thai name for street dogs. A 'soi’ is a more residential street that branches off the busier boulevards. The dogs are more active at night and although Thais are increasingly purchasing dogs as pets, these stray dogs are most often treated with contempt.
The photo was taken with flash and a 5 second exposure.
My site is up and running! Currently most photos on the site were taken during my travels around South-East Asia in 2009 and 2010. The site will however be regularly updated with new material. Updates will of course be mentioned here.
Prints are available for sale. Please contact me if you are interested.
