Are you watching me?
I’m just going for a walk
To the edge of it all

She, just a little girl, cute and curious! ~ Karl

Talking of the future

Stung Hav 2

A residence
Rather sparse presentation
Home nonetheless

not too far from Sihanoukville Town . ~ Karl

As leaves fall
We develop our story

"My sorrow, when she's here with me,
thinks these dark days of autumn rain
are beautiful as days can be;
she loves the bare,
the withered tree;
she walks the sodden pasture lane."
- Robert Frost

Stung Hav

This one goes here
And that one there
A drying art

The children are putting the fish on racks, to dry in the sun. 
The children of poor families all help in sharing the work! 
I gave the children 1000 real each, they were really happy. 
They ran in their house to tell their Mom and Dad. 
Makes me feel good too! ~ Karl

Give form to the wind
The dogs are barking

The hammocks were empty! ~ Karl

Charming Florida roadway

A day forgiveness

From different walks of life
To be here, now

To wash the sandy beach
Wind and sun do the drying

It has been my pleasure.
Thank you for your kind attention,

Weary from its labors
Has more to do
