A Boy at PIO Steung Meanchey I own a flash, but I haven’t use it much. Now I want to make the best of it. I should have been brought a tripod so that I can light the boy from a higher level.

I have been in Siem Reap again for more than one week now. I got some fun with kids and some photos of them during my visits to a couple of schools last week.

I have posted enough photos of buildings lately.
Smiling Boy with decayed teethDecayed teeth is one of common problems Cambodian children, especially in rural area, are facing. I have found that in rural Cambodia, some kids are just sky away from camera, while some simply keep getting in front of your camera. At least show them their photos in your monitor, if you cannot print them, as they definitely love to see themselves on screen.

I took this photo since January during my visit to a school in Kampong Tho for inauguration ceremony preparation. It looks much better after cropping and color adjustment.

I find the innocent smile of Cambodian rural kids with their sparkling eyes is not something to be beaten. I seldom fail to see them through my viewfinder whenever I have chance to. Here are two of my favorites from my recent trip to a remote school in Siem Reap.

091026CamKid2 A very soft smile when she touched music instrument, recorder, for the first time in her life. Children of developed countries may take music lesson for granted, but it is not the case for kids in Cambodia, especially at school in rural area.

Last Saturday I went to Kean Svay for lunch and spent an afternoon there with my family. I used to do food shopping for picnic at friend’s farmland for a couple of times, but I think I had never had lunch there for at least in the last ten years. After lunch we rent a boat to nearby Koh Prak. At the river bank, the island boys were amusing themselves with water.





The following day, on Sunday, I set out with old buddy to shoot some Phnom Penh’s forgotten architectures. (I will share those photos later if I have time.) On the third floor of a building, some buys was indulging in gambling of shoe sliding.




These boys are trying to adapt to the environments in which they are living, having different ways to spend their weekend.
