A story about Cambodia

keochan:

Dear everyone,

I’m gonna take a short break from Doctor Who gifs and Harry Potter quotes, and also, I’m gonna ask for your attention, as I have to tell you a little story, it’ll only take a couple of minutes and I’ll try to make it as short as possible.

This is my home, the Kingdom of…

I just post photos. I’m not an activist, or even a decent photographer. I don’t live in Cambodia, I’ve only been there for Visa runs. But if Thailand is making the news due to current political unrest, Cambodia should too. I have a feeling it won’t… But we can try. Please repost if you feel so inclined.

This was amazing to me.  Gyer is a graffiti artist from (or at least has a lot of work in) Rhode Island. But this sticker is in Bangkok.  Sometimes things happen that make you really think about how small the world is.

Remember this one?

Still at the same BTS stop. Puppies generally grow a little quicker than this…

Last time there was an older woman nearby, putting water in the dog dishes, and generally seeming to keep an eye on the girl too. This time there was a middle aged man staying nearby. (I generally walk for a few hours taking pictures, and will pass by the same spot 2 or 3 times, specially if its near a skywalk to cross the road). Apparently/supposedly/allegedly there is a system of using child beggars, or bait, for sympathy, that have no actual relation to the adults with them, other than the mafia boss that paired them up. I don’t believe thats true in all cases. And I’m not saying that we shouldn’t feel sympathy for the children, or anything like that. Just makes me wonder. Sometimes I feel disgusted and depressed after a night of photography.

Damnit… I forgot to post this under phothaigraphy. If you see this photoset, I never post under “thisismattp”. I just post under “phothaigraphy.”
