My first 24 hours here in Cambodia are almost over, and so far I really like it here, people seems nice and kind.
One thing I really dig is that you – as a tourist – can buy a sim card for your mobile phone and then be online on their 3g network all over the country for just $15 – for that you get 2.5GB data download, and it works for 30 days – a lot of telecommunications companies around the world could learn something here.

Do you know the Photoshop plugin called FocalPoint 2 from OnOne?
If not I recommend that you check it out – they have a free trail you can try be for you buy – if you like to fool around with depth of field in your photos.
I use FocalPoint 2 on the photo above, to get the bokeh effect around the FedEx truck. And that is just one of the many things you can use the plugin for.
As you can see the site is undergoing some design adjustments. I was asked if I would uploaded my photos in a higher resolution, and I actually been wanting to do that for a while now, the only problem was that the old WordPress theme wouldn’t show pictures in more than 1600px, don’t ask me why. I’m not that much into the hole html, PHP web programming stuff.
But I looked around Themify’s website, that’s where I got the old theme, and I really like the way they do their coding and back bone of the theme – it’s easy to tweak the theme without knowing any coding – and found one I liked.
I’m almost done with the tweaking, just need a few small things – like adding a texture to the background.
Hope you like the new look and the option to download the photos – just right-click the photo, and choose save as – in a higher resolution (for now it’s only the new photo’s that are available as a highres file).
cause remember I share my work under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 License and that means that you are allowed to download the photos for private use – like a wallpaper on you computer or you tablet.
Have you see the old Tim Burton movie Edward Scissorhands? If you haven’t then I encourage you to do so, it’s definitely one of his best.
Well, my point in mention that movie is that on my Mexican road trip last year, I came by this small residential, a bit northeast of Colima, and it reminded me of that place in the movie where the family that adopts him lives.
