It was taken from the second floor of my apartment soon after 6 PM. Before there were many wooden houses along the street I am living, but now only a very few of them have not been turned into concrete buildings.

    Beautiful, I prefer not to turn thing like people did trying to turn an old city of Phnom Penh into Hong Kong we lost history & some culture within, do you agree? development without conservation suck

  2. Phossdey says:

    Spectacular, brother. Now I feel the beauty of the city.

    To me, most of flats in Phnom Penh look very similar, concrete boxes. Lack of uniqueness and creativeness. Kun, you are right that we should not abandon our old tradition; yet things, including culture, keep evolving, I believe architecture should be also developed in a way that our traditions remain.

    “To me, most of flats in Phnom Penh look very similar, concrete boxes. Lack of uniqueness and creativeness.” what about your house?

  5. Phal says:

    Seth, I dun own a flat or house, but the one I am living in is one of the typical type I have said about.

  6. Phossdey says:

    Maybe, brother. But this picture really makes me see the beauty of the city.

    Nice coloring and shot, a good job! what camera do use by the way?

  8. Phal says:

    Sis, the houses in this photos looks much better than what it does in the reality.

    Hi Samnang. It was taken with Nikon D80. I am still a DSLR newbie, so there are still lots of things I need to learn.

  9. Samnang says:

    Thanks, Phal. Nikon D series is my favourite. Good camera also requires an owner with artistic vision like you. Keep up good work.

    PS: I own D50 and will intent to change to D80 like yours.

    Samnang, please share your photos as well. And please share me your experiences too, as you have more experience with DSLR than me.
