Backpackers wearing Fisherman Pants were a common sight on my earlier Thai vacations. Haven’t seen many this time, probably because Hua Hin is not on that particular tourist trail.
You know how it is when a figure – ground illusion suddenly pops? For example, in the photo below the first time you realized there were both faces and a vase?
Had a similiar experience when photographing fishermen unloading fishing boats. Don’t know how many times I’d shot the same process but yesterday was the first time I realized that almost all of them were wearing Fishermans Pants. Until then I’d thought the garment was a revival or repurposing of a historical garment.
The pants are 199 baht (~$6) at the local Mall.
