A quick update from Cambodia.
The ruins at Angkor Wat are just absolutely amazing. It's hard to describe them in general, because they really are a collection of quite diverse sites - Angkor Wat impresses with its size and grandeur, the Bayon (my favourite so far) is a maze of smiling stone faces that confront and mystify you at every turn, Ta Prohm is an utterly romantic ruin (ruined by the hordes of Japanese tourists we had to share it with) ... the list goes on. I shot so many photos on the first day, I thought I didn't, couldn't shoot any more on the second. I told Kris that I wouldn't take any photographs at Pre Rup ... then we stepped into the temple compound, and two seconds later, out came my camera.
It's that kind of place, where you don't know whether to take photographs, or just put down your camera and enjoy the feel. I snapped like crazy in the first 10 minutes at the Bayon, then had to stop because I just wanted to see the place ... then started again because there was just so much to shoot!
I'll post in more detail when I get back home - I've been keeping a journal, and will transcribe and postdate the entries when I get back - that is, if I have time: I'm at 12 rolls of film shot already in just 3 days, and I'll need to develop them when I get back. (note to self: whatever estimates of film requirements for the next trip here, just double them)
