Last Wednesday when i was out on my walk i discovered a new park in Bangkok called Chatuchak Park and because i had discovered this park later that afternoon i didn't get to walk all around this lush green flower park so i decided to go back there again today because i did notice some beautiful boulders around the park and i wanted to go back and photography these boulders for the lovely @shasta for her #bouldersunday challenge she runs every week so here you are some lovely boulders for you @shasta

On the day i was at this park i had enter the park from the entrance gate at the far end of this park it would say it's about 5 km in length this park so this time i entered the park from the other end the part i hadn't seen.

After i had seen and photograph enough boulders for @shasta i decided to exit the park and move on to the other side of the park where i had noticed an older suburban of Bangkok which i wanted to check out.

Older suburbs of Bangkok always intrigue me i love to see the old culture the history of the country and how the people go about there daily lives around these older parts of Bangkok.

Now i have switch this post to Black and White because i feel it will give you a better vibe of the old suburb and looks more realistic.

Some of these old wooden houses date back more then a hundred years some of these houses i noticed people still living in them probably handed down from there grand parents but some i could see were abandon but someone was sitting on some good real estate.

Why i say good real estate is because these houses sit in the middle of a commercial business area so one day someone will be building over all these once beautiful traditional house which will be a real shame.

As i got further up this long straight bushy road which i would say was about 3 km long , about half way up this road was what seem to be a car cemetery all these cars just left on the side of this road it actually blended in well with the surrounding.

I needed to take a break on this convenient sofa on the side of the road and give my feet a bit of a massage before i made my 5 km walk back to the Skytrain along this concrete tunnel road.
