Cambodia 2010

Fiery Sunrise

Cambodia was probably one of the best places I’ve traveled to. But I’m not really a chronic traveler — matter of fact I always prefer the inside of my room than the brightness of the outside world — so I’m not sure how believable I can be when I say it was really great . Also, I’m not really sure if it was really that great or maybe I was just too tired of seeing beaches and mountains and your run-of-the-mill Shinto shrines that are all abound in my native Pinas (the beaches and the mountains) and here in Japan (shrines, temples, and other thingamajig). Maybe I just found the whole place interesting during that time. But whatever, what matters is in the end, I enjoyed that trip and was really bummed that it ended so shortly.

So, anyway, the following photos are some of my picks in the last shutter-bonanza in Siem Reap. The locations visited were the Tonle Sap Fishing Village, the ever famous Angkor Wat (seriously, everyone who goes to Cambodia must go to Angkor Wat),  the Angkor Thom City that houses my favorite Bayon Temple (the one with the massive stone faces on the towers) and the Terrace of Elephants, Ta Phrom (think Angelina Jolie’s Lara Croft: Tomb Raider), and Banteay Srei that has all those carvings of anything Shiva plastered upon its walls.

It took me more than two months to finally finish this album. Yes, I am that slow and yes, there were many, many shots. Like I said above — shutter-bonanza. Whew. So anyway, here goes:
