Default Cambodian Children

Hi all, my first post of images so go easy please. Just got back from a holiday in Vietnam and Cambodia. Saw a lot of orphanages along the Mekong river where we visited children & elders in villages. Quite eye opening to see how they live, such happy & loving people.

Very pretty. Any particular reason the first child is looking so sad?

Nicely done, Coongoola-

The sharpness and colors are excellent. Is there a story, Pat, about the child in the first photo?

Hi Raghu, We were on a tour of about 20 people going through the orphanage and we stopped in a town named Kampong Chnnang to buy gifts for the children in the village. There were about 30 children in the village and we were asked to buy up to 10 items to distribute among the kids. So I bought 10 LED flashlights which weren't expensive, others bought balls, coloring books and pencils etc, so there were plenty of gifts to go around.

This girl who was about 5 was a little shy and just kept to the back of where all the gifts were being handed out and she thought she would miss out until someone came to the rescue and presented her with a special gift. She had amazing black hair that reminded me of a movie star.

By the way the camera was FZ35

A few more images from Cambodia. These were taken in the Floating Village area Between Chau Doc and Phnom Penh where most of the people live in floating homes on the river, which is their main income. A lot of the people farm fish directly under their homes and sell them in markets on the shore.

Regards

Pat
