The abandoned concrete pillars known as BERTS (Bangkok Elevated Rail Transport System) are due to be demolished to make way for the Red Line electric train. The bases of these concrete henges have become the canvases for graffitti artists and taggers. It seemed important to document some of these and so I walked from the Miracle Grand along the construction route to get some pictures.

Reblogged this on Thailand Footprint: Impressions left by the books, people, places and music of Thailand and South East Asia and commented:
Bangkok’s urbane urban adventurer, Alasdair McLeod takes his camera with him to document the graffiti on the concrete pillars known as BERTS. You can follow Alasdair’s blog and adventures by clicking the green follow box in the lower left hand corner.
I thought urbane urban adventurer was rather clever. Your thoughts? Happy New Year. This is my favorite disturbing WordPress sight of all time.
