squished things

That's a jazzed-up cockroach.

A couple years ago, I made a point of photographing squished things in the streets of Bangkok. Not a difficult task.

My girlfriend tells me she was in a taxi when the driver pointed to a farang: "That farang is ba (crazy). He rides a unicycle and takes photographs of dead of animals." She didn't bother to inform him that the farang in question was me, her boyfriend!

These creatures are caught, frozen, in pretty much the position they were in a millisecond before they met their fates.
