A monk I met at Angkor Wat. He was reading a book from a hundred meters away and started walking over when he noticed me taking pictures of him. Turns out he is just a very chatty monk who is learning English and likes talking to tourists. Noticed the light was really good and asked for a photo at the end of our chat. Hope he continues improving his English!

My tuk tuk driver in Siem Reap,  Sra Pon. 

Revisited the wonderful temples of Angkor last month and happy to meet him again. He was my driver when I visited back in 2009. 

Like many of his generation,  he lost family members during the Khmer Rouge years and was driven homeless. Two decades later he’s worked hard enough to rebuild his life, and now he’s paying the mortgage for his home. He’s courteous, speaks good English and has good knowledge of the history of Angkor. 

If you’re going to Siem Reap,  I would recommend contacting him for your transport needs at srapon@ymail.com.

First thing to do after buying a new lens — take a pic of the wife.

Finally taking a proper break from work! And a new camera to make my return to Siem Reap a little more interesting… ^_^

Flower #wonderland. Tulipmania at Gardens by the Bay, Singapore 2014. #tulips #flowers 

I always wondered why Singapore is sometimes referred to as a Garden City when there are hardly any flowers on the streets. Perhaps it’s the tropical climate?  (at Fujifilm X-Pro1 + XF 14mm f2.8)

Tulipmania at the Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay. Singapore 2014.

It was very crowded when @joannetopia and I visited on May 1, a public holiday. The only upside was, there were many potential subjects for people shots! (If no one actually got in your way, that is.)
