I know this is "gruesome" sight of fish slaughter. But what I wanted to show here is the glove that the lady was wearing while cleaning the fish. How often do you witness a person using a golf glove to clean a fish?!! For another similar shot, click on this thumbnail :
Crowding Around The Net
I saw Celia's image of the fishermen hauling in the net from the sea and it reminded me of my time at Pangkor Island where I also spotted a couple of fishermen doing the same. Typically, as `tourists' we went to see if they had managed to catch any fishes. With all the hard work, they only managed to catch a few fishes. At the same time a city boy stands watching the crowd surrounding the net, checking out the fishes that were in the net. It's not an everyday occasion for any of us to witness this act. After all it was a beach resort and never in our mind would think and expect fishermen hauling in fishing nets!
Attached are a few pictures I wished to share of a young city boy witnessing the act.

Two shooters capturing the same subject matter. Find the other shooter.
Below is the image before crop:
I have mixed feelings when looking at this image. A combination of joy as I look at the lady staring at my direction with a coming smile, the boy sitting dazed in deep thoughts, while the girl looks dazzled. What draws me to the shot most is the little girl having pale almost colorless skin and brown hair. A very disturbing yet eye catching image as she doesn't fit in with the rest of the people beacuse of her appearance.
One Lazy Afternoon.... with Dino
It's always fun to see what others do at the park. In this shot, the man is seen lying sleeping on the stone pavement while his wife sits besides him carrying their son who is also half asleep. Behind him sits a comical looking Dino peeping to say hello.
The first thing that probably draws you to this shot are the flowers in the big basket on the bicycle. But if you look carefully at the title of this image - it says - Reading. Why? At the far right hand bottom corner, you can see a man (the peddler) reading the newspaper. The least of the thing that seemed not obvious can sometimes be the highlight of the shot.
Come & Buy My Bag
I like the expression on the woman's face as she attempts to sell her piece of embroidery handbag. The twinkle in her eyes obviously indicated that she was delighted to have her face taken and at the same time took the opportunity to promote the sale of her goods. The little girl at the corner as an observer had a little smile on her face as she looks at the lady holding the bag and posing for that shot. The twinkling eyes are the highlight that makes this shot special.
Lines Of Pretty Lanterns
In my photography journey, I constantly look for unusual subjects to take. In particular those with vibrant colours and also which looks a bit abstract. I purposely visited the temple during the Chinese New Year to shoot the hanging lanterns. It was indeed lovely to see lines of lanterns all over the place and I couldn't resist this shot.
The Young Fisherman
It's a rare opportunity to see a fisherman pulling in the net and a chance of a lifetime for a city kid to experience this act. It put a smile on my face to see this little boy trying to help pulling in the net to shore and it's obvious that his grandpa had to take a shot of him doing that!
Romantic Moment To Cherish
This is another shot taken at Phnom Bakheng, Cambodia. I am not an expert in taking sunrise/sunset shots but it's always a nice feeling to be able to capture a scene or even producing a reasonably good picture to admire and keep. I quite like this one for the sun was shot and captured in between the woman and the man, making the entire scene a romantic one. I can imagine what both of them were thinking, being in love and at the same time admiring the beautiful sunset. Wow, what a memorable occasion! I am done with my Cambodia travel blog. At last I can sit back and relax, enjoy looking at the pictures. I hope you too have an enjoyable time browsing through this gallery. Thanks once more for your support, it's been a great challenge putting up those pictures and illustrating everyone of them! Click here for the links - 'Trekking Cambodia'
