One shot before I was asked to leave

I thought they were all extremely hospitable here, but this man did not want a foreigner on his land - which is fair enough...

Bored, So I'll Post Some Photos...

These were taken in Takeo Province. There's alot of farming in the region, not many towns, so if you're not working, you spend your time just hanging around, sitting under the palms, or walking in the sun. Camera battery ran out pretty quick, and with no source of power, it sucked not being able to take any photos...

The Lone Duck Embryo Seller

Cycling along the raised track running through a large area of rice paddies. She seemed happy for a photograph!

Marriage In a Rural Community

Was lucky enough to travel down to the far south east of Cambodia for a friends marriage. Just a couple of shots to show a traditional wedding under the palm trees...

After sympathising for the ducks and their inevitable fate, it was upstairs for the first part of what was a day long ceremony.

The Road to Angkor Thom

The road to Angkor Thom - from the other side. A marked difference when compared to the tourist route!

More Pagoda Stuff

What I think really was the last of the Khmer New Year celebrations. This was at the pagoda south along the river in Kralanh, close to this family. I don't think many English villages could hold an event like this with such a fun vibe, hhmm...

Half way up Phnom Krom

Unfortunately, I could not make it up to the top of this 'mountain' due to financial reasoning only. Hey, it was nice enough half way up. At the time of the photo it's dry season, which is why the buildings look a little odd on stilts. Give it 3 months more, and the design will make sense...

A dollar a Day

Life in the home of a peasent family in Kralanh, North West Cambodia. It's insane how little the cost of living can be though, making it almost possible to have a 'reasonably' comfortable living for little over a dollar a day...

Khmer New Year in Pagoda

Everyone seemed real happy at the pagoda yesterday. It was the last day of Khmer New Year so lots of fun and games. The monks were busy cleaning though...

6am On The Strip

Sweeping up yesterdays dust on the No.6 Highway, as it comes through Siem Reap

Dirty Window Over Hungary

Nothing special, but i was impressed with the fluffy clouds down below. According to the on flight information this is almost directly above Budapest, but i doubt this very much.

Around Siem Reap in Fisheye

Siem Reap is much more than an expensive tourist town used for access to Angkor Wat. While thinking how I could capture real Siem Reap life I came up with the idea of using a cheap fisheye filter while cycling around. Awful technical quality, but some interesting results
