Growing up in the UK, I cannot recall seeing many security guards in public places - besides from sporting events and a few office buildings / shops. Here in Thailand and like many other places in Asia, security guards seem to be everywhere.
This security guard is one of the many at my office complex. Luckily, they are provided with large parasols to stand under to escape the scorching sun and heavy rain we experience in Bangkok.
