Phnom Penh Central Market ~ Cambodia
In 2000, I was brought to Phnom Penn on an music production assignment for the film "City Of Ghosts", starring Matt Dillon. Unfortunately, I was unable to visit Angkor Wat while I was there, but I was still quite awestruck by a lot of the French Colonial architecture, and most in particularly the art deco central market building. Although not viewable in this photo, there is a strange weathered, almost mildew-like patina covering the exterior that makes the entire structure appear haunted and alien, like some sort of abandoned space station from a 1930's Buck Rogers movie.
