Sekong River – Attapeu, Laos

Attapeu, Laos. Attapeu was interesting and pretty far off the beaten path. I spent a few days exploring south of the Bolevan Platteau, looking for minority villages. I found a vast HAGL rubber plantation and a lot of illegal lumber while I was at it…. HAGL has made news in England recently for its ties […]

smoking homegrown pipe tobacco

តា​ ជក់ ខ្សៀ មួយ

Whew, it’s been a week since the last upload! I have the dual problems of spotty Cambodia internet (out for 4 days) and a job that’s kicked into high gear over the last week. I haven’t even had time to process photos from my time in Laos a couple weeks ago. Soon, hopefully. Anyway, here’s […]

riding an elephant down a jungle path

Riding through the Jungle

Riding an elephant down a jungle road in Northeast Cambodia. It’s a pretty cool area. Off to one side is a crater lake, and on the other is the steep bank, rising up away from the lake, covered in jungle. It’s pretty exotic and there’s bamboo groves everywhere. Please feel free to share my images—they […]

crossing on a ferry in the early morning.

Early Morning River Crossing

Crossing the Sesan River, early in the morning, in Northeast Cambodia. On one side of the river, there’s a phone number scrawled on a piece of plastic affixed to a tree; if you need to cross, you call the number, and hope that the ferry operator isn’t too busy to come. Thankfully he came within […]

Transition between rainy and dry season in cambodia

Transition to Rain

Taken in Ratanakiri, Cambodia. Cambodian sky between the seasons is always gorgeous. Something about the early summer heat causes some amazing weather patterns. Every day one experiences some new amazing sky, thunderstorm, or incredibly shaped cloud. It’s like art. 9 image panorama. Please feel free to share my images—they are meant to be seen! Use […]

Hilltribe farm prepared for planting dryland rice

Slash & Burn Farming – Panorama កាប់ ចំការ ដាំ ស្រូវ

I shot this last week out in the highlands in Northeast Cambodia. The ethnic minority hilltribes are all prepping their fields to prepare for planting their dryland rice next month. It’s pretty cool to watch: they clear an acre or two of the forrest (by hand!), then burn the brush and fallen trees to return […]

The Khmer Angorian tempel of Bayon; known as the Mona Lisa of South East Asia.

Bayon Panorama: The Mona Lisa of Southeast Asia

Stepping back from the fame of the enigmatic, ambiguous faces, the Bayon is pretty impressive from afar. 9 photo HDR panorama, stitched in Photoshop’s photomerge feature. Please share my images—they are meant to be seen! Use them for your non-profit, on your blog, for fun and the like, but you must link to and […]

Jayavaraman the seventh staring down through the years.

Face of an Ancient King- ជ័យវរ្ម័នទី៧

Dignified. Serene. Enigmatic. Powerful. His face is forever immortalized by hundreds of carvings, scattered throughout the temple, smiling down upon the passing centuries with a serene, meditative dignity. Bayon was built at the zenith of the Khmer Empire. It was built by Jayavaraman VII, who has possibly the coolest names of all time, and was […]

Royal Palace on the Riverfront, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Preabaromareachaveang ព្រះ បរមរាជវាំង

It’s seriously called that. It’s the Khmai word for Royal Palace. Just saying it is good for some serious vocal calisthenics. The Palace is really an excellent testament to Khmer architecture. In front of the Palace is a nice park overlooking the river. The park is a great place to hang in the evenings. You […]
