This is one of my favorite pictures, taken in Phuket. I love it because it represents one of the constants throughout the culture of Thailand. Creativity by necessity. These two men are playing a game of checkers with beer and Coke bottle caps that lay scattered in the sand all along the beach sidewalks. They laugh and talk with each other while waiting for tourists to ask about the jet skis, motos (scooters) or tuk-tuks for rent.
