People say that Bangkok has the worst traffic in the world.

One way that residents of Bangkok use to get through the traffic quicker is by traveling by motorcycle—either their own or on the back of a motorcycle taxi. Motorcycle taxi drivers, some of whom are women, always wear an orange vest.

Using the Canon 5D Mark II, I've tried to capture some of the glamour and terror of riding on the back of a Bangkok motorcycle.

There is, by the way, a helmet law in Bangkok. Unfortunately it is not enforced. These pictures are also available in a larger resolution.
