This boy dismounted moments after I took this picture
I'm getting closer to that quintessential photo of the lone boy sitting on a water buffalo surrounded by hectares of bright green paddy fields. It's a picture that's managed to elude me so far despite my extensive travels across this beautiful country. Everyone else seems to manage it, but not me. I see the opportunity in the distance but when I get closeby, the boy usually dismounts or turns away at the moment of truth. It's happened so many times that I'm definitely jinxed when it comes to that
photograph. However, here's a couple of shots of buffalo boys taken yesterday in Kdei Beng village, miles from anywhere in Kompong Cham province.
