Cambodia – Battambang – 6th February

Today we gave up on the idea of yet more bike riding misfortune and decided to use our legs. After an early morning run around Battambang and some breakfast we headed out to look at the french influenced buildings around the town and stop by at more temples. In the afternoon we headed out to the train tracks once more but this time to the abandoned railway tracks. Children playing in the wasteland that was once a French operated train yard, which is now home to people living on the perimeter of the town and is a dumping ground for their rubbish. We headed back towards the hotel with cameras poised. Toyota must have a huge market share in Cambodia, almost every car you see is a Toyota Camry, they love the Camry! More work time on the roof and a few drinks before heading off to the White Rose again for some cheap food, one vegetable and one fish Khmer curry.

    Some of these are shocking and quite sad. Where was that little girl going, crawling through the stonework? You’re really capturing some amazing moments.

    Really liked the shot of the two peeps under the yellow umbrella, caught in the sunlight on a shadowy street. That’s such a cool photograph!!
    And the rendered wall with the ripple of bricks going through it.
