I posted a couple of the portraits I shot in Cambodia a short while ago, and a few readers were kind enough to comment on them….so, given that I can’t actually shoot over the next few days I thought I’d drag out a few more Cambodian ‘people’ shots from the pc archives..
The top two shots are of four sisters from the same family. We were on the second leg of a dirt biking trip from Phnom Penh up to the Northern borders with Laos and Thailand and had stopped in their village for a bit of R&R. The elderly lady in the portrait I posted before was their grandmother. Its amzing what an ice-breaker a digital camera with a screen on the back can be.
The third shot was taken just before we left Cambodia, about 40 clicks south of Siem Reap in a village that spends a large portion of the year in the middle of the Tonle Sap lake.
While we were there it was the dry season, and consequently it was possible to walk through a large part of the stilt village where we saw this second set of sisters, beautifully framed in blue, working on the days crop of morning glory.
The final image, (which I realise is not a people pic at all), was taken a short while later when we found a boat and ventured out onto the lake itself. Chances are I’ll post some further shots from this part of the adventure at a later date.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these shots until I can download and post some of the stuff from our current trip.
