Railways stations have became places of interest for me to photograph. I used to think of visiting all these old railways stations in the kingdom for my personal collection. However I just do not have time to realize my wish. The station in Banteay Meachey’s provincial town is my latest one I photographed in January 2012. I woke up early morning hoping for some good skies but it was NOT my lucky day. Here are two shots I snapped on that cloudy day.

Wat Broyouvong Slum
Wat Broyouvong was rated by the Phnom Penh Post as the kindest pagoda in the Kingdom, considering their generosity of letting people buildings houses right next to the Vihara, the pagoda’s main building.

Fishing Shots

I took almost a hundred shots of men casting fishing net along Steung Sen River in less than 2 hour span. Yet I could not get a single shot I planned to have. I need to get very close to fisher to get the composition I wanted. But I was afraid it would be me who would be catch in the net not fish, if I went too close to them. Well, at least I could get some passable shots to share here. Not a bad day.

Yesterday’s evening I took a friend to Olympic Stadium as I though the aerobic dance might be somehow interesting for him and I have not visited there for quite a long time. The sky was boring gray, though I could enjoy a few shots of blue hour that lasted less than 10 minutes.

Only when I saw my LCD that I noticed that there are now many high-rise building around the stadium.

I don’t know why I got so many wedding invitations this March. Well, I am very happy that one of my close buddies from junior high got his knot tied yesterday. All the best to the newlywed couple.

I got a flat tire on the Monivong Blvd. and I needed to walk my bike for five minutes to find the place to fix it. It is my first time to have a woman to fix my bike. 🙂 I am glad to have a camera withe me!

I take less photos and blog even less often lately. Am I either busier or less passionate? I used to bring my camera with me most of the time, but it is no longer the case. However yesterday I was able snapped off some shots when I dropped by Beung Kengkong market, one the market I have less excuses to visit, to grab some bites after lunch. Here are tow of them.
