The future...
There are many children at Killing Fields who would crowd visiting tourists. They would gather together, and say in a singsong way,
"1, 2, 3...Smile!!"
Sorry... I don't like taking posed shots...

My apologies.
Today, July 7th 2018, I'm reposting a photo from about 12 years ago (both shot and originally posted on flickr).
I shot this in Phnom Penh at the Killing Fields on my second trip to Cambodia. I've been to Cambodia thrice and interestingly with 3 different people from 3 different continents and all the trips took place in 2006.
I've never been back there since and I have no intention to return either as I would like to remember the country the way it was, before fast food and before obesity (which I think is there now although I don't think as much as elsewhere).
This shot is significant to me as it's the first shot I've taken that had truly increased my confidence in photography.
In fact, I consider this photo as one of my 25 best shots.

Two years ago she was abandoned at Angkor Wat. Now she lives with 47 other orphans at the Sangkheum Center for Children (a privately funded Center).
If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of Cambodian children or if you require further information, you could contact Kim Derudder at Kimderudder@jpacambodia.com. I'm certain he would be glad to assist.

ps: This is the second photo in my PEOPLE OF SIEM RIEP SERIES. Next is PEOPLE OF SIEM RIEP... LOVE... A photo that affects me more than this one does..

She is a postcard seller at Angkor Wat. She goes through countless rejections every day coz Angkor Wat is usually the last temple visited and tourists have bought their postcards earlier. I know that rejections are not supposed to be taken personally but still hurts....

ps: Thank you again for all the visits, comments and faves. Please take the time to visit other pictures in this series.
The next picture will be the last in the PEOPLE OF SIEM RIEP series.
