Cambodja, now the positive side
Camera: K-7 Photo Location: Cambodja

Cambodja has much more to offer than its grim history of war and terror.

Here a few photo's

First, this one was made in a traditional dancing school for street children.

I've never seen that country spelling before. Interesting. Love the series and you need to show us more, lots more.

Great perspective of the Kapok tree. I'm not sure I have seen a photo like this of those trees.

I also really like the first shot.

Phnom Pehn is a very grim & dark place but i'd go back there to photograph it.

A few more then...

All pictures taken with my faithfull DA*16-50mm / K-7 combi.

At Angor Tom, giants churning the sea of milk:



Cooking lunch on a pole house, 5 meters up (15 feet).
I did not dare walking on the thin bamboo parts of the floor!
The picture is somewhat blurred, but gives a nice impression of life in the village.



One more Kapok tree in Angor Thom, I like it B&W better.



Inside one of the many Wat's



The Royal Palace:



On Tonle Sap lake:

Excellent additional shots. I hope lots of members have a look. The "giants churning the sea of milk" is stunning. Beautiful shot. The 3rd, Tree is very good as well. Interesting how nature is taking the place back.

This is a very nice series of photos. The first photo is really cool as the colors look great and you captured a great moment as well. I hope that when I travel overseas I can capture all the amazing culture as you did with these photos.

Thanks for sharing,
Cory
