Tones on Tuesdays: The river and the city

Scattered Horizons

Guess who’s back!?! Who else but moi,the Missus! Lol.
I’ve been busy for a while having snagged another short term consultancy. Already, I rushed a proposal for a communications campaign for an international conservation organisation here in Cambodia. Not counting the face to face meetings, that document was done in a matter of two days and one night (2D1N), well, an all-nighter, more likely. But I’m glad it’s over and done with and we’re anxiously waiting for a feedback.

Now that I’m back to blogging, here’s my entry for Tones on Tuesday. This was originally a photo shot in a daytime exposure. I played with it using the fuss-free Picasa and here’s what I came up with. It shows the view of the the Tonle Sap river and the capital Phnom Penh.

If you click the photo you will see a bigger version of this. Across the river, a little to the left side in the middleground, the structure with pointed spires in yellow, is the Royal Palace.  To the right, with a darker yellow-orangeish building is the Wat Ounalom. At night, it is a different sight to see. At the foreground are residential houses. This photo was taken by my husband on top of a tall building on the Chrroy Changvar Peninsula.

I hope you’ll like the photo. As an aside, I’d like to say thank you to Emily over at Scattered Horizons for showcasing my last week’s Tones on Tuesdays entry. It was a pleasant surprise and it truly made my day!

Now I’m done with this yet I still have a crisis to attend to. An appliance crisis, that is. My oven doesn’t get hot enough and so my pies and breads have been failures lately. I have to phone the previous appliance repair guy again. He was the only one who was able to solve my “oven problem”. At first I raised an eyebrow at him because when he first came here, he was armed with a toothbrush! But that toothbrush solved the problem, lol. So I’m giving him a call again. Ta-ta.
