Roaming Ta Prohm Temple – Jungle Temple

June 4, 2009

I headlined that “The Great Explorer in Siem Reap” on my previous posting. Now, let’s imagine and pretend that you are an explorer and are walking into a forest… deep forest. There is no pathway. You even have to wade and cut small trees grown on the ground and make your own narrow path to keep moving and walking.  Suddenly, you stop because of a thing appears in front of you. The thing that may cause you to hold a breath. The thing that may make you feel stunning until you may could not stop thinking how the thing that happened. 

Yes, that was what I felt when I walked into the Ta Prohm Temple.  Even the walkpath to the Ta Prohm  Temple nowadays does not look like what I let you imagine. But you would feel that when you visit there.

Ta Prohm, intentionally left as it was found in the 19th century, appears enveloped by massive tree roots, tentacles that hold it in the convoluted grip of monstrous nature. Distorting the stonework in a way that creates a surreal effect.

Distant Look in Black and White

April 12, 2009

A snapshot is one of my favorite photographs I like to do and still keep practising my own skill. When I snap people photos I always find myself pay attention to their eyes.  Looking at people eyes is such amazing moment especially when they are in thought.

Boat on the Mekong River, Luang Prabang, Laos

March 31, 2009

When I started the previous boat posting on the Mekong River, you could probably guess where next to the boat photos. I’ve been around the Mekong River many times last year. Luang Prabang was one of destinations. The town is located alongside the Mekong River. How couldn’t I get the boat photos?

Here are some photos taken on a boat trip to Pak Ou Caves.

Chiang Sean Lake in Black and White

March 3, 2009

I rarely do the Black and White photo posting if you could notice. Until a few days ago I had a thought, why not?..why I don’t try it…just like my blog name “(Try to) Make It Worth”. 

All right, here we go. My first few B&W photos… and of course, more will come. Please stay turned.

Cambridge City is well-known city for the university of Cambridge, in Cambridgeshire, UK.  But I would name it ” The Bicycle Town”.

Some Point In Time

I must say, it’s truly what I felt at the moment I was thinking of what next to my post.

“Have you ever questioned yourself, some time or other in a moment of life, where you are now? – I do mean, you really are.” 

My own answer??… Yes, I have, for example, I was walking alone on the road, suddenly stopped in the middle of the road and asked myself the question. Did I get an answer? What do you think?  And how’s about you? Have you ever asked…?
