Smiling in the Rain

I had been out making some photos at Prasat Banteay Srei, and was on the way back to Siem Reap, when it started rain like hell, I took like 5 minutes for me to get soaking wet, even though I was sitting in the back of a tuk-tuk – with a roof over My head – after a while we passed some rice fields, and I made My tuk-tuk driver and friend Mab stop, because now that I was soaked anyway, I might as well get out in the rain and make some photos.
I ended up walking into the rice fields, to get some good angles.

But on My way back to the tuk-tuk, I saw these girls, getting on their bikes, I manage to get a few photos of them beck they went on their way.

I’ll show you some of the rice field photos later on, when I get them processed.

Seemed Like an Eternity


Made this one a few days ago in the backyard where My girlfriend lives. It had snowed all night, and when I looked out the bedroom window I saw this little red bike all covered up.

I got down just before the janitor started to clear the snow from walkways and by that destroying the pure white snow lying around the bike.

The photo was made with My new fisheye lens from Samyang, a really awesome and cheap lens, it can focus on a distance of only 9cm. I can highly recommend it if you are looking for a cheap fisheye. Mine is for the Olympus but I think they make it for other brands as well.

I don’t know if this is the only way kids are getting transported to school every day in India, but it sure is special and so Indian, and I mean that in a good way.

It’s quiet amazing who much stuff they can put on a bike in India. When walking around the streets of any Indian city you’ll see these overloaded cargo bikes all over the place.
Some are too heavy to ride, and have to be pull like this guys doing.

Vegas Bike

The next couple of days are just gonna be photos and no text – Well maybe I’ll add a little note or something - cause I have a lot of work hanging over my head at the moment, and that is properly gonna take up all my time, unfortunately.
But I promise that I will return with a guided tour of the new site – do you like it? – not that it’s that hard to figure out, and by the time I get to do the tour, you guys properly already figured it out.
