Cambodia “People” #1

Photographs of some people and the odd cat / dog I came across whilst on my travels. In general I asked the individuals if I could photograph them. They gave of themselves freely and I think its shows in their natural expressions. Most of the people I met were warm, hospitable and happy to oblige. Part one of Cambodia people photos.

En route to Beng Mealea (a tempe in the / forest jungle) we had a slight issue with our mini van. The tyre wall ruptured and shredded into lots of bits causing us to stop in a rural village. With in 10 mins the locals came out to investigate. This chap tried to engage with me, but unfortunately I don’t speak Khmer or French. Facial pleasantries were exchanged instead.

This young lady’s mother was selling freshly peeled mango. We purchased quite a lot as it was baking hot. The mango in Cambodia is sublime.

  1. Lovely sharp portraits mate.
    They get a lot of use out of what look like converted lawn-mowers. I could do with one of those for all the mud around here!
    Cheers, Pete.
