Loving son Photoshops his 85-year-old mother into his travel snaps

Chub Nokkaew, a 48-year-old photographer based in Bangkok, said he regretted never having taken his mother, Nang Lom, 85, on holiday with him, and wanted to include her somehow.

A son whose mum had never been abroad has stolen hearts around the world after he Photoshopped her into his travel pictures. 

Chub Nokkaew, a 48-year-old photographer based in Bangkok, said he regretted never having taken his mother, Nang Lom, 85, on holiday with him and would often think of her during his journeys.

The pensioner is now too unwell to travel, but was delighted after her son Photoshopped her in with him - everywhere from the Eiffel tower in Paris to a bridge in Venice, and Cape Town to Tokyo.

Nang Lom has started to lose her hearing and sight, has difficulty walking, and is now confined to a village in rural Phetchaburi province, Thailand.

But Chub said she 'was emotional' after he made the images of her in different cities that he had visited - and wished she was there with him. 

The photographer, who runs a studio in Bangkok, said he created the pictures to remind people to take their own mums on holiday as Mother's Day takes place in the country on August 12.

He said: 'When I was younger and my mother was strong and able to travel, I was busy working hard to build a stable life for us and help to support her.'

The pensioner is now too unwell to travel, but was delighted with the doctored images, such as this one in Shirakawa-go, Japan

Nang Lom has started to lose her hearing and sight, and has difficulty walking. These original photos were taken in Cape Town, South Africa

She is now confined to a village in rural Phetchaburi province, Thailand, but here she is Photoshopped into this travel shot, also in Cape Town

'For Mother's Day we would just go to the local temple as that was all we could afford,' he explains.

'I'm sad about that and I regret it a lot. I wish I could go back in time and change things, so she could see all the beautiful places.

'Whenever I travel abroad I'm sad because I would like my mum to be there too and experience the new place.' 

Chub goes on: 'I always wish she was there with me. It'll never happen because she's too elderly now.

'A lot of people take their mums on holidays for Mother's Day and I would like to be able to do the same.

'I hope that other people see the pictures and they decide to take their mother somewhere nice.'
