PEOPLE... CAMBODIA (THE KILLING FIELDS)
Dear all,

My apologies for a long absence...
Touching lives through photography is what I aim to do. But, how could I touch lives if I couldn't reach them? What an uphill struggle!!! I donno.... I've given up on ever being top 100 in fotopage.
Thank you so much again for visiting/commenting in the spirit of idea sharing where there is no right or wrong answer... I really appreciate the time and the effort you have taken for each visit and each comment...
Have a great week and a greater week ahead.. Keep on shooting!!

Best regards,
Azli Jamil

ps: I went to Cambodia and Vietnam for vacation 3 weeks ago.. :)



The past...
The Killing Fields were a number of sites in Cambodia where people were killed and buried by the Khmer Rouge communist regime which ruled the country from 1975 to 1979. Estimates of the number of dead range from 1.5 to 3 million out of a population of nearly 8 million people.
The best-known of these sites is Choeung Ek (where these 3 photos were taken) where it is the site of a Buddhist memorial to the terror.




The present...
Now, the place looks more like a field with a lot of holes but we cannot go there and not feel the chill of the past. Nonetheless, life goes on...
I don't think the boy even realizes what the place was. To him, it is a place for his cows to graze... while pondering upon his future...




The future...
There are many children at Killing Fields who would crowd visiting tourists. They would gather together, and say in a singsong way "1, 2, 3...Smile!!"
Sorry... I don't like taking posed shots...
By the way, out of the thousands of shots I've taken, I consider this as being my best shot. What do you think?


I've been busy with Flickr lately http://www.flickr.com/photos/azlijamil01/
I would like to take this opportunity to share with you my Flickr pride. :)
Below are two of my top shots on Flickr where shots posted are ranked in term of interestingness every day. The first shot reached #1 for shots posted on Sept. 2, 2006 (it is currently ranked #4) while the second shot reached #3 for shots posted on Sept. 9, 2006 (it is currently ranked #5).
I hope you like these two shots (both taken at KLCC... $-) $-) $-)
