Morning market, Kratie. She was selling hot chillies and sipping from the plastic bag, crushed ice with lemon syrup. (very popluar with Cambodians kids). Coca cola and the like still far too expenisive for most people. I am not sure that this is any better for their teeth or diet, but it is nice not too see the red tins everywhere.

I suppose it depends how much sugar they put in it. Anyway, better for them or not, it sounds a lot nicer, I can never understand why coke popular, must be one of those life style things that pass me by.
Anyway, lovely portrait of this girl.

The girl is so lovely with her ice-drink.
I often saw this in Cambodia or Thailand, realy typical. The motive is so pretty, also the colours and the light. You made a perfect shot full of life. Thanks

Hey, she is so cute to see, twinkeling dark eyes. She is nicely lightend towards the warm darker BG with fine details like her funny slippers. I like this cute capture Elaine

I really love this picture.
To those who have been to Cambodia, this capture represents a cultural face with its endurance after decades of civil war, killing fields, unexploded land-mines and lack of nutrition. However, the Cambodian people is no lack of hope to their future...
With this simple picture, you captured them all.

As often in your shots, there is here a beautiful connection with your cute model
I like the way you composed it in including the baskets, chilis and the relaxed attitude of the little girl
TFS such pleasant moments with us

Hello Elaine. The photo "cool lemonade and hot chillies" is more than one picture, - it is a small and masterful work of art. It is one of your best photos. Best regards, Wolfgang.
