Photo Walk Phnom Penh – 3rd April 2011

Following on from the thoroughly enjoyable first Photo Walk (check out the flickr group to see the results), we’re doing another one (first weekend of every month is the plan). So, this Sunday, 3rd April, in Phnom Penh. Check out the details below!

Date: Sunday 3rd April, 2011.
Meet/Breakfast:
7.00am at Cafe Java – if you don’t feel like breakfast/coffee before we start, just be there at the start time below.
Start: 7.30am, outside Cafe Java
Route: We’re open to following our noses a bit, but the general idea is to head over to Sothearos/Samdach and meander south heading into a fairly interesting little neighbourhood between Norodom and Samdach. From there we’ll go through the Buddhist village/area/temple and potentially, make our way over to BKK market. We’ll see how the photo walkers feel.

Who’s welcome?

Everyone! Whether you’ve got a camera phone, a point and shoot, a fancy DSLR, or an old style film camera, all are welcome. Pro or amateur, it matters not. All that matters if that you’re interested in having a wander around Phnom Penh taking some photos.

If you’re interested and need some contact details, leave a comment here and I’ll drop you an email. Don’t worry, your email address is not shown to anyone other than me.

How will I know who the Photowalk tour is?

There’ll be a bunch of us with camera gear inside/outside Cafe Java. As above, drop me a comment if you’d like to get some contact details to help meet up.

Please note this is just a rough idea of our route. Depending on how we feel on the day we may end up going a slightly different way.

Phnom Penh Photowalk – 5th March 2011

We’ve got our first photowalk lined up this Saturday, 5th March, in Phnom Penh. As this is the first one we’ve done we’re going to keep the format fairly open, with a suggested route starting on Riverside, meandering over to Central Market and winding back to Riverside.

The plan is as follows:

Date: Saturday 5th March, 2011.
Breakfast:
8.30am at FCC – if you don’t feel like breakfast/coffee before we start, just be there at the start time below.
Start: 9.15am, outside FCC
Route: As mentioned, there’s nothing too strict planned, the rough idea is to head up Riverside and meander inland past Kandall Market and slowly over to Central Market and then head south down Pasteur Street, back across Norodom, around the back of the Palace and National Museum and back to FCC to collect any bikes parked there.

Who’s welcome?

Everyone! Whether you’ve got a camera phone, a point and shoot, a fancy DSLR, or an old style film camera, all are welcome. Pro or amateur, it matters not. All that matters if that you’re interested in having a wander around Phnom Penh taking some photos.

If you’re interested and need some contact details, leave a comment here and I’ll drop you an email. Don’t worry, your email address is not shown to anyone other than me.

How will I know who the Photowalk tour is?

There’ll be a bunch of people with camera gear milling around outside FCC, and at least one of them will have an overgrown beard.

Site just launched

After a number of conversations between a few ex-pats in Phnom Penh, there’s been a general consensus that it would be great to have a monthly Photo Walk just to give us an excuse to get out there with like-minded folks and take some more photos of this fascinating place.

Whilst there was a Flickr group set up for the specific “World Wide” photo walk day, the idea has been floated on there of a monthly gathering but hasn’t gone any closer to becoming a reality.

For the time being, this site will function as an announcement of the next date/time/location, and we’ll put up choice photos if anyone wants us to (don’t worry, you’ll still own your own pictures if you do choose to put them up here – perhaps we’ll watermark them).

If anyone else wants to help admin this site, drop me an email on the contact page!
