Homework: Being Aware

At the moment, we are doing a number of things to try and become more aware of where we live, the world around us and the people that surround us every day.

Today’s homework task is all about showing your awareness of where you live. Follow these instructions carefully.

Take photos in your neighbourhood of at least three of these things. Then, upload them to our Flickr account and mark the exact spot on the map. Include more information in the description of each photograph.

  • The closest place with some nature (eg., a park)
  • The closest shop where you can buy some basic groceries
  • Your favourite local restaurant
  • Local places where you can buy street food
  • The closest place where you can get a motorbike taxi
  • The closest new building project
  • The closest empty plot of land
  • The closest BTS or MRT station
  • The closest fresh food market
  • The closest place where there is often bad traffic
  • The closest community who appear to be very poor
  • The closest amazing, beautiful, old or weird house
  • Something interesting close to your home

Make a comment to tell us what photos you took. Paste in the URL for each photo.

    I took quite a lot of photos, but I didnt take 3 of all because it was evening and there wasnt really enough time and space, my mom and grandmother also said to be aware that security guards come and kidnap you, because you take photos of their stuff at night.
    Heres the photos URL;
    Tigermart Pimboon
    Street Vender Pimboon

    Im only adding this much to the map now because its late at night and when I was almost done typing the description and stuff, the internet downed, so I had to do it all over again

    My internet is not working so I am just going to describe the pictures I took yesterday and then maybe I will still have time to put them on Flickr later.

    The closest Place with some Nature:

    My garden but I only took a picture of some parts of my Garden because I couldn’t get the whole garden on one picture.

    The closest shop where you can buy some basic groceries:

    That is conveniently Foodland which is a 30 metre walk from my house.

    Local places where you can find street food:

    There are street foods all along soi 18.

    The closest place where you can catch a motorcycle taxi:

    I took a picture of two motorcycle taxi stations since my house has an exit to soi 18 and soi 16.

    The closest new Building project:

    The closest new Building project is 10 meters away from my house because my garden is very slim, Luckily it is just a two floor family house.

    The closest BTS or MRT station:

    I took a picture of Asoke BTS station but I couldn’t take a picture of the MRT station because it was on the other side of the Asoke Traffic light and I was taking a walk by myself.

    The closest spot where there is often bad traffic which is the Asoke traffic light with huge amounts of traffic coming from every direction.
