Siem Reap is a charming little town. Sideroads can be dusty It has a lot parks and a tree flanked nice river which divides in in two. There are a lot of school-monastery and temple complexes. I visited some and took pictures of daily life. Ths monk was very kind to let me take a picture during his class. Children were seated , boys on one side and girls on the other. But here the girl's side was a bit dark and I could manage only half of the class. What I liked best is the fact that the children seemed very happy. Perhaps I was the reason hen they saw a foreigner brandishing a camera, I don't think it happens too often.

Nice and funny image, despite the lack of light (the normal in the conditions it was taken). Good document and good explanation. Regards.

What a fine place to go for a winter break Izzet. I agree, a very charming town, and even more chraming is this view of the class. What a good idea to get an invite here.

Hepimizin ilkokul fotograflari vardir, herkesin bir arada oldugu, bir kosesinde de ogretmen. Bu cocuklara o fotografin bir ustad tarafindan cekilmesi nasipmis.

Merhaba Izzet. lovely shot, very nice with these school kids all smiling and the monk in the back. I really like this one girl's attitude (she is standing and frowning with the classic female hand on her hip). nice work.

A charming group portrait, Izzet, instantly putting a smile on the viewer's face (well on mine at least). I like the looks and attitudes of the happy kids, and the teacher by the window seems to have a good time, too. Great "learning about the world" photo indeed.

Voici une photo très sympa!Garçons d'un coté et filles de l'autre :il n'y a pas encore si longtemps c'était encore pratiqué en France!
J'aime bien cette tranche de vie dans cette classe et l'oeil du photographe fédère le groupe!
Merci pour ce moment!

Bonsoir, Izzet. Une photo qui semble dater d'une autre époque. Des élèves souriants qui ont l'air heureux d'être en classe et, surtout, d'être photographiés. J'aime voir les cartes qui penchent à l'arrière-plan. C'est un joli doucument. Il me semble que la photo aurait pu être un peu plus nette, cependant.
