More than words: Time-lapse video of Bangkok, Thailand


Making more of video post is one of my future goal. Take better photography has been always my purpose. And now there’s new option in the middle; Time-lapse video.

Recently, I had a change to get involved with a photo project – that’s what we called, turned out to be an awesome time lapse video. Stephen (@bohemiantrav ) from came up with an idea of document one day in Bangkok and put together in one video, including his big hair cut moment. I participated as a steady hand photographer, 2 minute-model, mp3 format transformer, and Picasa semi-pro.

Not just because I involved in the project.. the reason why I think this is a great time-lapse video is because it’s really active and live. It’s not ‘Whoa!’ amazing but it is fun!


# Statistics : total 939 photos in about 3 minutes

# Scenes including :

-Move around using various transportations – taxi, sky train..

-Several meals out-yes we ate a lot and you can see we completely emptied them all.

-The biggest moment, Stephen got his haircut (after three years, quote) by Thai hair stylist. It was little bit nerve-breaking as a girl who had some bad encounters with incompetent hairstylists, but this turned out well!

-Chinatown street vendors, ice coffee and people.

-Shopping spree in the famous Chatuchak market.

-Boat ride to Wat Arun that locked us out but it was good enough to see the temple.

-The best part.. all the fun.


More than words, right? Just like the song.

Enjoy!! And let me know what you think about this project!


#Special thanks to Stephen, came up with a fun idea and included me in the process.

  8. Serena says:

    that’s simply awsome, juno! i love stop motion 🙂

  9. First of all, this is SOOOOO cool! Love the music and the activities. You guys accomplished a lot on a brief trip. Favorite moments: the haircut (of course), shopping at the market (with a brief glimpse of semi-nudity!) and the temple at night (cute cat).

    • Juno says:

      Music was Stephen’s found, and it fits perfectly! Thanks Leslie. Glad you enjoyed it! You’ve noticed the semi-nudity? that’s so funny! He bought some shirts from the market. 🙂 The temple was a great ending of the project I think. I would love to do it again!

  10. Laura says:

    Wow I like that a lot! hehe V. Fun. Great pace and Music. I great way to show the experience. Those were cute tops in the market! Also Do many men in Thailand have mustaches? or was that requested? I am also a big fan of getting my hair cut in different countries. Especially when you can barely give any direction. I suppose with a males haircut it might be a little less risky. Haha v. Cool. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  11. Erica says:

    I love this!

    I really like the candid smiles you guys had – you can tell you were enjoying yourselves. I want to see more of these!

    • Juno says:

      Thanks Erica! I liked what you said ‘candid smiles’. So true! The product itself is awesome but its more awesome because we had a lot of fun! 🙂
