Hello dear TL-friends,

This photo I have taken under very difficult circumstances: from a moving car on a very bad and dusty road and even through the windscreen!
This is not a high quality photo, but still I want to show it.

Here we drive on the "highway" to Banlung in the North East of Cambodia. This road is unpaved, is full of holes and pits and is very dusty.

Here you see the most diverse forms of transport: scooters with whole families (up to 5 people!) or loaded with chairs and cabinets, with beds and mattresses, with vegetables and fruit and so on or, as here, with a live pig .....!

Also you see a lot of pick ups with all sorts of goods and loaded with people, according to Western concepts sometimes really irresponsible......!

And all these people on a bike, a scooter, a pick up or on foot they weare dust caps on their face against the dirty reddish-brown dust.

This dust is everywhere: in your eyes, in your nose, in your ears, in your hair and you are pleased if you can take a shower at night......

Even the trees along the road have the same color as the dust: red-brown!
In the wet season, the trees become green again and the road is mud and therefore still worse passably......!

Greetings from Zeeland, Netherlands,

HI Adri,
hahaha, poor pig - I also saw this way to transport them in Cambodia several times - a good idea to keep the meat fresh when it is alive - but horrible for the animal I think.
Your shot is very good, pretty colours - and nice memories for me, thanks and greetings

Hallo Adri,

Meteen knippen als je zoiets tegenkomt, zou ik tenminste ook meteen gedaan hebben.
Wat een bijzondere dingen kom je daar toch tegen.
Spectaculair vastgelegd hoor!

Groetjes, Marga

Ja, schitterend.!
Eeel foto met spek voor je bekkie.
Met die schaduw aan de linke kant lijkt het wel een zwaardvis.
Ik zag zoiets soortgelijk op baly die had dwars op zijn scooter een enome vis leggen die hij met zijn blote voeten in bedwang hield.
Tot straks.

In dit soort momenten is kwaliteit niet aan de orde,dan moet je gewoon je camera trekken en knallen
Leuk Adri ;]]


Ha ha Adri, deze vind ik erg leuk. Goed dat je het vastgelegd hebt. Prachtig en daar is het heel gewoon.
Het lijkt wel of t varken ligt te zonnebaden, niet wetende wat hem nog te wachten staat... ocharm.

Ik zal nog eens verder kijken in je Gallerij, heb er een boel gemist zag ik.

groetjes, willemien
