Through someone else's lens.

Having a friend who is a photographer is pretty dang cool. Typically, these folks have their DSLRs attached to their faces whenever they leave the house, and if you can get them to hang out with you enough, eventually you'll make your way into their beautiful, thoughtfully curated Flickr galleries. This is the case when it comes to our good friend, Bryan Volz, who has been documenting the punk shows, road trips, cookouts, cabin weekends, parties, and everything else that's made up the last decade of our lives. Most of the time, we don't even notice when he's clicking away, so it's always a pleasure to discover his photographs days later, to see what he saw, our likenesses obliviously shifting from to frame to frame in the background.

Bryan accompanied us on our trip and took approximately a gazillion-bazillion photos. Most of which can be seen on his Flickr, but here are some of my favorites. You can click the photos to see them larger in his photostream, where he's also written some detailed captions. This is the last installment of Vietnam/Cambodia posts.
