"I'm bored! Where are my customers!"

Certainly, that's how the lady fish seller looks like in the photograph. This was taken at the wet market section of Siem Reap's Old Market, called Psar Chas in the local language. This place is a huge hub of sellers and buyers. Fresh food, dried food, meat, fish, vegetables, fruits along with non-food products like hardware, clothes, bags, shoes and even jewelry are sold here.

Meandering through the various stalls was an experience in itself. The sights, sounds and smells assaults you from every direction. A photographer's haven.

Hello... I Am Josh

A little about me

Josh For some, it's shopping therapy. Others, movie therapy. Yet more, reading therapy. For me, it's writing therapy.
Why writing? When I travel, I enjoy first-hand the experience like in shopping therapy. But when I write about my travels, I live vicariously the experience again, as if like a movie sequel (or more like GroundHog Day, except that this is fun!). Yes, writing evokes the memories, the fun and the not-so-fun but all-in-all it gives the satisfaction of reliving the sense of place once more.
With images, it enhances the experience down one's travel memory lane. With this in mind, I hope to share my travel stories in words and images with you. For your escape therapy! More...
