sunset over the mekong

Evening in Kratie

Sunset over the Mekong river. Just shot this about 10 minutes ago, off of my hotel balcony in Kratie. Back in 2006 when I was traveling through Kracheh, I actually took a photo from this exact spot (same river, same hotel, same balcony), and posted it to Flickr. It was one of my earliest photos, […]

rubber sap in ratanakiri province, cambodia

Raw Ratanakiri Rubber

Bowls for harvesting latex sap out of rubber trees in Ratanakiri, Cambodia. Rubber is pretty lucrative, especially for a small-time farmer. Even half a Hectare of young rubber trees can give the owner hundreds of dollars a year—not bad for a farmer in Cambodia. They take a knife and cut a 3-inch slit in the […]

A pretty young girl in Phnom Penh, Cambodge

Curious? ស្រ្តី ក្មេង មួយ នៅ ភ្នំ ពេញ

This little Cambodian girl eyed my wife and me impassively from her rickshaw—calm, serene, almost smiling…. we smiled, but she seemed shy. Please feel free to share my images—they are meant to be seen! Use them for your non-profit, on your blog, for fun and the like, but please link to and give credit […]

moto taxi driver on monivong ave, phnom penh

Streets of Phnom Penh

Moto-Taxi driver in Phnom Penh. His old green Honda Super Cub is probably from the Seventies. For $0.80, one can get nearly anywhere in Phnom Penh on the back of one of these, and can also be reminded of how good it is to be alive when you nearly get run over by a Lexus. […]

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 […]



Day and night meet….fleeting, mysterious, undisturbed… dawn breaks at Angkor. Part of the breathtaking morning experience watching the sunrise at Angkor Wat, as the stars slipped away one by one as sun slowly unveiled the temple, as it had every morning for a thousand years

Red dirt road in Ratanakiri Province, Northeast Cambodia

Road To Nowhere – ផ្លូវ នៅ រតនកីរី

Another vintage post from 2009 This is a pretty typical scene from Ratanakiri, Cambodia. There are a lot of hills, a lot of jungle, and plenty of red clay. I shot this Sunday afternoon. I saw some really cool cloud banks building up, and set out on my dirt bike to find a couple of […]

Ethnic Minority Villager's House

My Inaugural Post

Time will tell if this photo blog will prove abiding. I notice how the Web seems to stink with the rotting carcasses of countless dead blogs, like so many Bartlebys, bygone testaments to authors’ imperfect resolve. Hopefully this one will prove more enduring. My goal is to upload a photo a day, with a brief […]
