My 2019: The last 2019 Showcase Weekend: Some Photo Posts I Published with Low Payouts

While I was on the road to stay legal with Thai Immigration, the traffic came to a standstill for at least 30 minutes one afternoon. This shot brings back my anxiety of wondering if I will make it to the office on time. As usual, I was renewing my stamp on the last day possible.

The best thing to do when life gives a curve ball is to take photos. I was glad to get this shot of a man crossing the pedestrian bridge much faster than we were moving down below.

Post Payout: $0.85

One of my last shots of California was entered in a contest by @socalsteemit. This is a very typical scene of life there as I waiting to ride the San Diego Trolley. I like this photo for the color and clarity. The 711 is much farther away than it looks in this shot.

I did not know that Cambodian children spend their lives begging everywhere until I spent a week in Phnom Penh. They approach you at tourist attractions, as you eat, and when you get in and out of tuk tuks.

This tiny girl was the first I encountered as I ate my first meal at a street stall. She never said a word and I did not give her money since I had no idea she was begging.
