Temple Door In Phnom Penh Cambodia

Temple Door In Phnom Penh Cambodia

Honestly, I don’t remember which temple this was. It was right off the River Walk and just before 172 St. walking towards that street in Phnom Penh is about all I can tell you. I just liked the door. Looks cool. You think you are going to get some enlightenment dropped on you instead of a bunch of monks reciting the Dharma. Sadly, it was closed on the day I visited. Enjoy.

Wat Ounalom Monastery

Wat Ounalom Monastery

I was in Cambodia last month just to get out of Thailand for a bit. I generally try and disappear from Thailand periodically to have a holiday from my holiday as I call it. It’s not every person that can say they wake up to a view of the Gulf of Thailand as their daily view. During my time in Phnom Penh this time it pissed down daily. We are talking torrential rains for several hours. When it wasn’t doing…

Wat Phnom

Wat Phnom

I shot these last year when I was in Phnom Penh for a couple weeks. Wat Phnom is the main temple everyone goes to if they are in Phnom Penh. It’s a mixture of a tourist trap and a local temple. There is an entrance fee of $1 (Cambodia uses the US Dollar) but you can easily just step over the rope and avoid paying it. I saw a lot of cheap ass tourists doing this, it is a dollar…

Cambodia Street Photography – Part 1

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…

Royal Tomb Stairs

Royal Tomb Stairs

This is from the Silver Pagoda which is attached to the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh Cambodia. No idea whose tomb it is since I didn’t take the offer of the tour and just did my own thing. This image is almost purely out of the camera. Beyond using a profile setting and doing some slider adjustments I was happy with it. I did use a gradient for the sky and dodging and burning but that was all. Sounds like…

Palace Temple

Palace Temple

This is the actual temple for the Royal Palace in Cambodia. The thing is you can’t take any photos inside. I once got yelled at in the Bangkok Royal Palace because my tried to take one quietly, they know what shutter noise sounds like. With a mirrorless I could have done it but living over in South East Asia now I understand some things aren’t done so don’t push it. I just like the roof of these temples, they are…

Red And Gold Roof

Red And Gold Roof

No idea if this roof was part of the palace or the temple at the Royal Palace in Cambodia. There were so many parts sealed off and I was using a zoom lens that I can’t remember. Based just on the architecture my guess is it’s a palace building roof. The temple used a slightly different style architecture but I’m not 100%. Still, the way royal and temple buildings are done in South East Asia are really elaborate. I could…

The Grand Entrance

The Grand Entrance

I have no real idea if this is the grand entrance to the Royal Palace in Cambodia or not but it is in my world. I have tried to edit this photo countless times. First time Photoshop kept crashing from one of my plug-ins. I gave up and walked away. Then I got got so sick I could barely get out of bed. I’m going to call it malaria or something exotic instead of the flu. Today I finally got…
