Killing Fields Choeung Ek Cambodia   2 comments

While in Cambodia I took two tours, one was the s-21 genocide museum which I wont post photos from and the other was the killing fields at the village of Choeung EK.  A UN investigation estimates at least 2 to 3 million people were killed but it could be even more. The tour is done on foot with head phones explaining the areas where you walk. Such sad events in what seems a peaceful place. the small field I looked over has humps in it from where they have dug up mass graves. A commemorative  stupa is filled with the skulls of the victims at the Killing Field of  Choeung EK which is one of many sites but the best known one being the site of a Buddhist memorial to the victims. The memorial park has been built around the mass graves of thousands of victims, most who were executed after being taken from the s21 prison. We were told  bones and clothing surface after heavy rain due to the large number of bodies still buried in shallow mass graves. It is not unusual to come across the bones  of the victims scattered on the surface as you walk around the park. If these are found, you are are asked to notify a memorial park officer or guide. I found this a very sad but informative part of my trip to Cambodia, sad to see but important to never forget

 

here are a few photos

Visit to Ta Prohm temple Cambodia   2 comments

Ta Prohm  seemed to be one of the most popular temples  in Cambodia, probably the most crowded of all the Temples. It was very warm when we got there at around 9.30am. My advice would be to go early in the day.  These photos were all taken with my Fuji X100

Red road school Kampot Cambodia   2 comments

All of these photos were taken on a trip to Cambodia recently, all taken with a Fuji X100. This particular school my niece helped with the building as a volunteer a few years ago, when she left it was not yet being used but on return we see that the children love school. The young teacher is still at high school himself   What western children take for granted these children never had. They seem to love learning.

Winter days   3 comments

Its been cold lately with quite a few rainy days, I try to get out daily. Take a few photos here and there. There are always times when the light is good.  I guess I’m lucky that I live where I do. always some great spots to photograph around town. I am looking forward to warmer sunny days though.

Fuji X100: Six years on   2 comments

Had this little gem of a camera for almost six years now. It has traveled overseas, been bumped and dropped, still keeps producing the goods every time I use it. Every time Ive it taken out as my only camera I have still managed to get shots I probably would not have if Id taken my DSLR. There have been a few times when Ive thought I should  upgrade it to the X100s/X100T or the new X100F but Ive never seen a good enough reason. Ive also considered selling it to finance a mirror-less camera that has interchangeable lenses however  the way I see it  is thats what my DSLR is for.  So until it decides to die on me I think it will still be my go anywhere camera along with the little point and shoot  with zoom ability X10. Below are a few X100 shots  taken this year.
