    I’m glad you picked the camera back up !!
    1. “Cambodia Beer” Welcome to the West!!
    2. I see concrete and reinforcing rod everywhere– no bamboo. Welcome to the West!!
    3. The high-rise buildings only go 4-5 stories. Why is that??

    The pictures tell so much more than words do. I think that history is best told in pictures than interpreting words.

    good job!! Bill

  • Thanks for your comment. I will try and post a skyline photo to show the high rises in process. Yes, the photos can tell the story. Now that you mention it, I do like the overall effect of the last one even more.
