Working in the dome

I have been working on a project with my photo agency documenting the renovation efforts at Central Market.
Along with taking photos, I have been working on a slideshow which will have audio from around the market. So I have been walking around the market for the past few days, audio recorder in hand (thanks Rick for the loan).
Taken while getting some sound of some construction being done in the dome at Central Market.

Thmei Phsar Thmei

One of Phnom Penh’s most recognizable landmarks is getting a makeover. Built in 1937, its Art Deco dome is one of the coolest looking buildings I have ever seen.
It is now being renovated to its former glory by the French Development Agency at the sum of $5.5 million. The first of three market renovations planned by the FDA (Psar Chas and Psar Kandal being the other two), it is estimated to take 18 months to complete.
The first of three stages is now complete and market vendors are now moving back.

The lonliest cop in Phnom Penh?

Usually when you see traffic police in Phnom Penh, there are about 3 or 4 in a group. You hardly see just one working which made this photo a little unusual. Taken during a lull of mid-morning traffic on Street 130 just east of Central Market.

Psar Thmei Cyclo

Taken on a long day of errands in preparation for a trip to England and the Middle East in a week and a half. Took this snap with the Ricoh just outside the best coffee shop in Phnom Penh located just west of Psar Thmei.
