Fronting directly onto the main river of Bangkok are two Christian churches, the Church of the Assumption (Riverside) and on the other side, but not too far distant,  Santa Cruz (Kadeejeen). I like the pavilion at the Santa Cruz ferry pier, dating from early last century, if only because it reminds me of similar early-2oth century public structures in Sydney. I drew over the heads of the dozens of sketchers participating in the 2013 Sketchwalk Chaophraya.

And here’s a coloured pencil sketch from a photograph, done prior to visiting Bangkok, of the pavilion and the square giving on to the church proper:
