welcome in TE; very fast shot to capture this funny daily event. Good use of the telephoto with a wide aperture to blur the background.

Selling ice cream in Cambodia is a race against time!
This shot reminds me of an icecream seller I once met at the border between Cambodia and Vietnam. It was VERY important for him not to be delayed too much by the border police...for the obvious reasons. He spoke excellent English, though with a Texas accent, as he used to work on airplanes during the American War in Indochina (and he got his training in Houston). History is filled with ordinary people's tragedies and stories.

This is a very nice picture, Ian. I love that. Very Southeast Aian, esp. Cambodian. Very funny with the umbrella he uses. Sothy
