Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia

Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia in 2007. Arguably the most romantic of the various sites at Angkor. Largely left un-restored, it gives the visitor some impression of what it might have been like to discover the ruined cities in the 1860s

Ta Prohm, Angkor, Cambodia

Perhaps the most photographed corner of Ta Prohm is this, where a huge fig tree grasps the ruins in a vice like death grip, now the two are locked in a precarious symbiotic existence, where both need the other in order to continue, but the tree is inexorably peeling the building apart as it sways in the winds, and when the building finally succumbs, so too will the fig.
Unless the wardens cut it down first......

Keah Preahn

Detail of wall carvings at Keah Preahn, this delightful image of a girl washing her hair. So what of the Olympus Trip, well not much to say, you point it at the subject and push the button - it does the rest for you reliably enough to use in anything but the most challenging lighting conditions. The sector focus scale is a little vague, but there is a conventional scale marked on the underside of the lens barrel.

small       windmills in the breeze

sunset taken       across the decidedly murky Mekong
Something a little brighter, small windmills in the breeze in downtown Saigon during Tet celebrations 2007. Now these little windmills were in fact whirling away very nicely, but the 200th sec shutter speed on the trip has made too good a job of freezing the motion, given the choice I'd have blurred them. The same image was taken this way with our Zeiss Contina. This sunset taken across the decidedly murky Mekong is exactly as the Olympus Trip exposed the image, and exhibits the characteristic silhouettes from a largely underexposed image that generally results from shooting straight into the sun. As viewed by the observer this scene was much lighter, but I like this shot all the same.

River Taxi on the Mekong

River Taxi on the Mekong, down in the Delta region. Here the lady at the front supplies the power whilst the back is mainly used steering, the power in the stroke can be gauged by the bow wave.
