APAD 278: Sideview mirror image

I was fiddling with the new Nikon camera that my husband bought last week when I looked out at looked at the side mirror. The image “framed” inside the mirror caught my attention and took a snap. Please excuse the date stamp. At that time I wasn’t aware that it was on.

It’s a pushcart with lots of girl’s and phone accessories for sale that are colourful. With an ounce of business savvy , a dollop of creativity and huge, huge amount of tenacity, perseverance and patience – they now have a rolling (or should I say walking?) store. And there are lots of them enterprising Cambodians, especially on weekends, selling just about anything. Times are tough and I admire the way they are coping. I wonder how far they go (travel) and how much they earn in a day. It is a very tiring job, walking for stretches, with the scorching heat of Phnom Penh summer. I do like how the seller is managing from the heat and dust 🙂 I hope they are safe each day.
