The Thai Spiderman

He was not bouncing off buildings but merely – if not usefully – watering plants and flowers during that quiet yet already warm morning in Chiang Mai, Thailand's major city in the North West.

In that alley behind the temple of Phan Tao, he glanced at me for a brief moment – and precisely at that moment, his blue helmet was captured by my camera, as I was patiently waiting, with my finger on the shutter release button.

Even a Thai Spiderman is powerless against a ready-to-shoot photographer (and a ready-to-run-away one too – for who knows what tricks he had up his sleeve; or rather, under his outfit).
