des images vraiment magnifiques bernard. it's a double pleasure for me to look at your pictures, i was there in jnanuary 2005 and have always told myself i need to go back, and this might just give me the impetus. cambodia as a country is very photogenic, as are its people, and angkor wat is a very special place, particularly in early morning light. but cambodia is also very demanding mentally, the people there are still learning to live normal lives, trhey have not yet gotten over the khmer days. you really need alot of empathy to just begin to understand them.
You're very right about all that. Furthermore the growth of tourism in the Siem Reap area is a constant challenge in respect of the infrastructure requirements, and the environmental issues are not to be ignored. Nonetheless, tourists (including photographers) are an important source of income to Cambodia, which has much to offer. Phnom Penh is also an interesting city, worth visiting.
