They do look alike indeed! The one in the back was flirting with you.. Just look at her develish face when she is looking at you... she would eat you raw if she could! beware Simon!!! trust me little photographer.... It sort of reminds me of the snake in the jungle book ... LOL a very refreshing and human photo !

"...they are single and live together since they are young."  hahaha!  I can definately hear them saying that.  This photo has a fun and playful feel Simon, I love their expressions (esp the young lady in the centre of the photo).  Very nice.

hi Simon,

wowww you met some ineresting people here, can't really tell if you used some kind of flash here or not cause maybe the background was this dark afterall, but i would say that the surrounding is a touch to dark for me here. But the 2 women are very nice portayed here and since the project is about Bangkokers (great title btw) that's main focus.

great shot, keep them coming

This is a really charming photo Simon.  Up close and personal with a wide angle lens.  Maybe this is not your most complex composition or anything, but the one thing this shot really shows is how comfortable the women are with you; no tension in front of the camera.  Nice shot.

You did well to change the title as per Luko's suggestion - now everything is how it should be. Again very "professional" work here, Simon - really smart use of the wideangle ot take in a lot while at the same time separating the "stars" from the background. A model of situational portraiture.

Wonderful, Simon. Their happy coexistence is right here, in front of us. Beautiful tooth-deprived warm smile... and no fuss about it. They are lovely, their shop pretty dusty and old, but they seem not to mind... beautiful shot, a wonderful happy moment gorgeously caught with the best wide-angle lens
I will come back to your other shots but just got home --it's ice all over here
