Through the looking glass

Portraits of Angkor

One of the hundreds of portraits that I managed to capture as I climbed my way through the various ruins around the archeological park. Just as they are amazing to be seen from afar, the real reward is to observe them from up close. The walls, arches, roofs and even drains are covered with intricate hand carvings of demons and gods, each telling their own story. As I spent hours observing every single crack and smiling faces there is to look at, I could not help smiling at myself thinking about how the first person who rediscovered this place would have felt.
