Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Phnom Penh traffic – trucks, cars, motorcycles, tuks-tuks… and elephants

Here it comes!

Here it comes!

I was walking down Sisowath along the Tonle Sap when I spotted this elephant walking down the road.  It seemed like a normal sight as no one was particularly taken aback by the beautiful animal.  Traffic was heavily congested behind it but this did not appear to bother the elephant.  As the elephant approached me, I backed up.  No one else bothered. And just as soon as I saw the creature it disappeared into the congestion.

Sisowath Quay

This area of Phnom Penh is rich with subjects to photograph.  It is vibrant with life to the extent that one could fill up a memory card in the blink of the eye.  Lasting memories for sure.

I would recommend taking the two kilometer walk from the outdoor market near the Quay Hotel to the Sunway Hotel  to take in life along the Tonle Sap.

  2. It seemed so natural for this elephant to make this walk. Although his mahout was by his side, he didn’t need any guidance. One had the impression that he’d made this walk many times. These photos were taken on a different day from the last one I posted. Same elephant.
