The Nun of Preah KhanCambodia
I never thought I'd find myself typing these words. "I enjoy taking photos of people."
Yeah, hard to believe isn't it? That being said, I'm not running people down in my local town to grab a snapshot, but while traveling abroad the human element is one of the most compelling parts of my journey.
This Buddhist nun was sitting inside Preah Khan temple, offering blessings to those who passed. I thought her facial features and expressions just teemed with so much character that I had to get her photo. After taking a few shots I said thank you and was about to leave when she grabbed my hand and proceeded to bless me. As she was performing the blessing her eyes became wide and intense, it was definitely one of my favorite moments from the trip.
I can't wait to go back to Cambodia, I think it has now unlocked my desire to travel in Asia and see what the region has to offer. I have a feeling it may become one of my favorite places.
