Cambodia Street Photography – Part 1

I’m back I guess!? I don’t know to be honest. To be perfectly clear, I do photography for other things other than fun. So now, it’s less of a hobby that paid me on the side and more of something else.

Do I know that living in Thailand versus the US my time is limited for personal work. Part of this is when you have to do portrait stuff constantly, the last thing you want to do is pick up a camera and go out. I don’t want to force it and just turn out crappy images, but I also find myself taking snaps that are for me only. Usually on my phone and I’m done and move on.

The reality is, I live a life some dream of. I live an exotic location (ok, it’s Pattaya and a crappy resort town), but the reality is I do live in an area not seen by a lot of people and my “commute” is something on the surreal side unless you live it daily and most in the West aren’t going to dodge soi dogs, food carts, taxi drivers, potholes the size of small South East Asian Countries, people, and see some of the stuff I take for granted.

Now these images were shot in Cambodia over 2 trips. Which you may be asking, why am I showing Cambodia images versus where I live? Easy, I shot in Cambodia. I wasn’t doing portrait stuff so I had the inclination to shoot and carry a camera. I was on holiday from my holiday. Like it or not, even retired, you get bored.

These images were shot in Phnom Penh over 2 trips. October of last year and February of this year. One set shot on a Sony RX10 and the other set shot on a Nikon D5500 with a Sigma 25-80 lens.

Enjoy.

PS – If you notice some inconsistencies, I’ll freely admit it took me a bit to get back into the swing of editing these type of photos again. I do portrait work, whole other world of editing.

One thought on “Cambodia Street Photography – Part 1”

  1. I enjoyed the photos of everyday life in Cambodia. I am curious, what is the fruits that is on the carts for sale? The outdoor market for great bargains. The photos remind me life for those that do not work and are just enjoying the day and the “flee” market like we have here in Florida. I enjoyed!
