APAD 046: Traffic of shadows

Posted by on Apr 24, 2011 in A Photo a Day, Addicted to Meme, All things Khmer, Cambodia life, Shadow Shot Sunday, transportation | 7 comments

Took this in front of the Royal Palace (you can see the Palace wall on the right) mid-afternoon while driving to the grocery store. It was a quiet time for driving, the traffic light. I love the shadows cast by the vehicles.The Royal Palace is in Sothearos Boulevard. The pom-pom like trees on the right are palm trees; they are Cambodia’s national tree.
