Pieces of Everyday Life on the Street at Night

The Lens Artist Challenge is Everyday Life and Nancy Merrill’s is Street Light so I thought I’d combine the two and show everyday life on the lit-up streets at night.

In hot countries people tend to have a siesta during the hottest part of the day and then come out and socialize in the evenings.

Night markets are very popular in Vietnam. This one in Hanoi was packed even though it was pouring out and sitting at a nippy 14°C, quite frosty for the locals.Street Food at the Hanoi Night MarketThe Night Market in Luang Prabang, Laos.Night Market in Luang Prabang, LaosBangkok has night markets but they tend to be semi-illegal and move around. By the time we arrived at whatever night market we had found on the web the market had moved on. But the streets were alive at night so we didn’t suffer for lack of a night market (Thailand).07SEABangkokfaveCrabCafe041157wNight Market in Melaka, Malaysia.Night Market in Melaka, MalaysiaRajasthan in India is a dry state so the night life of the cities often revolves around worship, music or intense discussions (Udaipur).Rajasthan in India is a dry state so the street life of the cities often revolves around worship (Udaipur)In sweltering Bagan Al spotted this covered outdoor restaurant where the locals were watching hockey on a big screen TV.
