On last Saturday waking up at 4 am sharp, I made a very quick preparation and walked to the main road to hail a motor taxi heading to Wat Langka. Last year during this 15-day period of Pchhum Ben, I went to the nearby Wat Tuol Tompoung with a Japanese friend of mine. This year I picked up Wat Langka considering many people would visit the temple, and I was not wrong on that. The visit to the temple was very fruitful as I got some shots that kept me smile inside. Here are some of them.

Arriving home 15 minute before six my family was waiting me to accompany them to Wat Kambol along National Road No. 4, a few kilometers from Phnom Penh International Airport. In the afternoon of the same day, I left for the hometown of my wife in Takeo and spend one night there as well. I will share some photos I took there later.

    Quitting your current job to pursue your passion is not a bad idea. You have a great talent. I am looking forward to seeing more photos taken by you.
