look up close? Is it as craggy and lopsided when we’re seeing through a magnifying glass or as provocative and crass as everyday Khmer lives? In cinema, close ups are employed to spotlight emotions; to capture the most subtle of expressions unhinged by movements or maneuvers.

In this post, we explore close ups and magnified shots of structures that we would otherwise photograph as complete sceneries or whole objects. The result is an interesting spectrum of captivating images that seem to convey more subtle chronicles behind these scenes or subjects. These close ups and magnified images provide a pictographic odyssey that stokes the imagination.
This is the Eye in the Sky!

Hi Eye! Sorry for the delay in coming here, but these last weeks have been hectic; no, I’m not talking about the financial/economic crisis… ;))
This is a beautiful post with awesome pictures! One day I'll also travel to Penhom Penh... ;)
Have a great week ahead!
