Faces of Cambodia

Taking pictures with a shorter or longer lenses don't change perspective. Chose your location carefully, change the background, ambiance and do everything t take a great photograph. Sometime just go a little closer to the subject.

Traffic in Phnom Penh

In Phnom Penh most of the time the traffic is chaotic and motorcyclists seemingly suicidal. Traffic accidents are not uncommon. Don't be surprised if the entire families packed onto a single motorbike with a large variety of goods. This is "normal" in Cambodia. Death toll due to traffic accidents in Cambodia is on the rise, so be careful and use helmet if you ride motorbike. For the last 30 years, Sambo the elephant has been entertaining tourists at Wat Phnom but after she retired, finally relocated to Mondulkiri Elephant Sanctuary. For many years she was a permanent feature in the capital, giving rides to tourists.

Phnom Penh Street photography

Here you are some snapshot I captured on the dynamic streets of Phnom Penh. When you're discovering the city on foot, don't forget to bee cautious. There is no decent sideways most part of the city, and the traffic is chaotic. It's not illegal to take pictures of people in public places but I suggest you to ask people before you do it and it just seems more polite. If you don't speak the local language, just use your charm and gestures.
