Kompong Thom last week. I still have a flurry of photos from Sambor Prei Kuk to post here in the next day or two. Quite often on my travels I take far too many pictures of inanimate objects like temples, carvings and suchlike, and often forget to take enough people shots. It's the people of Cambodia that make the country so appealing - I must keep telling myself not to forget them going about their daily activities. One photographer who has this off to a fine art is Steve Goodman. Visit his blog to see what I mean. Anyway, enough babble, here's the pictures.
An early morning look at the main bridge, actually there are two of them, in Kompong Thom city that crosses the Stung Sen River
A seima stone at Wat Chey Sampeau showing the goddess with the long hair, known variously as Preah Thorani or Preah Neang Kong Hing
