Ta Som, Angkor Wat, Siem Reap, Cambodia
The Story of "Ta Som Temple"
While I do not usually include people in my photos, I do look to incorporate the human element when I feel it adds punctuation to a scene. This is especially true when photographing manmade structures, such as the ancient temples of Angkor Wat, but only when the human element contributes to the scene. It makes sense, then, that this Cambodia gallery features so many monks.
With some exceptions, the historic structures are impressive but not photogenic on their own merits. Throw in an old, bald, robed and wrinkled monk, and suddenly the scene has context... it has punctuation!
