Vertical images don't display as well here column-wide, but there were a few shots prepared that weren't horizontal so I thought we'd try a grouping of them and see how it works. Up top is a young man I met while out walking in Bangkok. His uniform was either some sort of school or faux-military, I'm not sure which; maybe a form of ROTC. Perhaps someone better versed in that area could tell us. This kid smiled faster than I could compose, focus and take the picture, but there's a hint of one there.
Below is the man who settled my beach chair and made sure I had shade one afternoon in Jomtien, bless his heart. I didn't catch the 1,000 watt smile he's capable of, but this one was nice.
Next is a guy who appeared to be just resting on the back of his motor scooter. I didn't take his photo when I walked past him the first time, but when he was still there on my return trip I asked if he'd smile - and he did.
