  1. Others have said it, but you really captured the facial expressions really well, Cat. Fantastic! Thank you. (And I hope you have enough rest. Out again tomorrow?)

  2. Kaewmala, Today was another fabulous day. Such energy! I have hundreds of long distance shots, but faces have always held an attraction for me.

    Out again tomorrow? Heh. I’ll have to see what the news brings. I am hoping to have a break to catch up on life (and to annotate the photos).

    (Thank you for your kind words :-)

  3. Fantastic photos! Really captures the joyous spirit of these protests so far. It will be very interesting to see if the smiles continue the longer this goes on.

  4. Fabulous photos Cat. They really capture a sense of the mood. It shows a very different side to what we see in the mainstream media, who are more interested in sensationalising.

    Thank you for your efforts in showing what is happening.

    Wow, the “angry mobs” sure are having sanuk sanuk! Others have said it already: your photos are REALLY GOOD.

  6. Cat, I have to say, with all the coverage of this protest I have yet to read one article or blog post that can compare to the photos you have posted. They say so much more than any words could possibly convey.

  7. Thank you everyone. I stayed as long as I could, but I do pity the poor photographers and protesters who were in the heat all day. And you should see what had to be put into place to make sure the protesters did not pollute the area (more photos to come).

    Tony, thanks! and for those of you who don’t know, Tony has the camera I’m hoping to acquire this May. You can see it in action in his latest video (it’s all good Tony :-) – Red shirt protesters converge in Bangkok

    Jeff, I haven’t spent much time watching TV. I catch the regular reports on the BBC but they are too brief and don’t really say anything new. Twitter has better coverage.

    Amy, Yeah, where are those angry mobs? Heh!

    Talen, Thanks! Photos and video really are powerful tools for conveying a message. The majority of the faces I saw were mostly upbeat, even those soaked in sweat from being too long in the sun.
