Weekly Photo Challenge: Everyday Life

For this week’s photo challenge, I chose photos from my travels to Vietnam and Cambodia in early 2011. Everyday life in these 2 countries are so interesting that you will never get tired of taking a snap.


This monk is off to collect offerings of food given by the townpeople early in the morning. Phnom Penh has a number of temples and one of these younger monks’ jobs is to collect the offerings from the altars around the city.

Sorussey Market

This was taken outside Sorussey Market in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. In this city, motorbike is an alternative transportation to get from one place to another. Sometimes tuktuk drivers charge so high that some people prefer this means of travel.  They can get pretty in your face though while offering their service, so have a little patience.


Speaking of motorbikes, Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) is popular for having one of the most number of motorbikes in the whole world. A lot of people use it every single day to get to work and school. So when in HCM, be extra careful when crossing the street! Most of the time they won’t stop for you.

New to The Daily Post? Whether you’re a beginner or a professional, you’re invited to get involved in our Weekly Photo Challenge to help you meet your blogging goals and give you another way to take part in Post a Day / Post a Week. Everyone is welcome to participate, even if your blog isn’t about photography.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use a “postaday2012″ or “postaweek2012″ tag.
