Kampong Thom From Top

As Kampong Thom is one of the main target provinces of my workplace, I have been there for one or twice every month for the last four or five years. I have been stayed at Arunras Hotel, the biggest hotel in the province, for no less than a hundred nights in total, yet I had never been to its rooftop until my last trip. Only the two telecommunication towers located in the nearby Department of Post and Telecommunication stand taller than Arunras six-story building. Here are some photos of Steung Sen Provincial Town from the top of the building.

    I love the kid with bicycle too. Eh, the land scape photo looks hazy.

    I myself also love that photo.

    Vuth, I am sorry if you are tired of sunset photos. hhaaheh. I will try to get some sunrise photos for you next time. Just kidding. Somehow I love sunrise and sunset, that why I cannot resist my temptation to shoot it when I have a chance.

  5. It doesn’t hurt to love sunset and sunrise, does it?

  6. Daravuth KEU says:

    Generally, i love your photography technique🙂

    Wow, i only recognize the third photo. For the other four photos, I have no idea where the locations are. You must know Kampong Thom well than I do.

  8. tumnei says:

    Sopheak, it is because things look different from the top. Next time you should go to the roof and check it out. But I am sure I know rural Kampong Thom better than you. hehe.

    Btw, I also did a little chitchat with your mother there. She asked me how do I know you, but I did not know how to explain her.😆

    fantastic😉 you make me wonder if I should change my job😀

    I guess coding is the only thing that make you stay up late past mid-night. You might even smile back at your pc quietly when your children are sleeping, Kun. Therefore, I think you won’t want anything more than that, my friend. And I am proud of what you are.😉
