a streetshot from Siem Reap (or Siem Reab)
from the back of a tuktuk
Siem Reap is the bustling touritst town near Angkor Wat. With tons of hotels, bars and restaurants it provides jobs for many Cambodians from the outlying provinces. There's also a very, very large contigent of expats living and working in Siem Reap.
Local transportation in Cambodia is often with tuktuks. In tourist places, all tuktuk drivers speak English and even in the more remote places, it's usually not difficult to find one that knows at least some basic English. In fact, usually they find you. (And yes, they are friendly and polite.)
For the more physically inclined, there are also plenty of bicycles for rent. They can be a great way to explore the vast ruins of Angkor Wat.
Cambodia needs wheels.

Ginder achter is bijna alles mogelijk, hier bij ons zou dit niet meer kunnen.
Goed hoe u de symmetrie heeft gevonden door de chauffeur in de midden te plaatsen en de wielen alle naast hem.
Goede foto met het dagelijks leven in Cambodja.
Mooi foto werk, bedankt.

an interesting street view here. Like the perspective made my those wheels... Like your composition with the moving one without showing its wheels but a lot of wheels at background. An eye catching presentation. Tfs.

I have some questions.
The purpose of the trip was to experience new things? or For religious purposes? or More than a tropical paradise?
It's great composition, light control is very good.

Hi Bonsior dear Benny, how are you today?
Sorry for my late reaction again.
You seem to enjoy yourself so much in Camodia this summer, right? Very nice daily snap shot in town full of life. Well balanced composition and framework is also remarkable too. Nice cropping at all!
Thanks a lot and have a godd Sunday! TAKERO

A funny shot, wheels on top of wheels on the street. I thought it might have been a bycicle shop or something :) Excellent POV with center and symetrical composition. Quality is spot and perfect as always.

Nice idea, Benny
Like the way you have used the wheels to frame the guys head and he is doing you the honour of looking straight at you. Reminds me of one of those shots you sometimes see of drivers at the start of a grand prix race! Focused on the finish line he looks straight through you intent on winning!
