Just chillin’…

… in the window of a temple many hundreds of years old… I’m not sure what the these two were doing, except just hanging out… They were there when I arrived, and they were there when I left… And only slightly perturbed at the interruption of a tall westerner… Unlike so many children I saw at the Angkor Wat experience, these two weren’t all that interested in shaking down this tourist… Just chillin’… At just one more temple out in the jungles of Cambodia…   Maybe they were seeing into their future, and maybe knowing about this post, some seven years into their future, and realizing it was written on this, the 402nd anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, and possibly, the 454th anniversary of the birth of the best-selling fiction author of all time…?   Naw… Just chillin’…           Advertisements

Resting…

  I’ve always liked this picture, but I think it’s because of the circumstances… It was a very quick, bang-bang kind of encounter. I’d have preferred a bit more time to get focus and composition better locked in. But you get what you’re given; and it’s up to the individual photographer to have his/her technique up to the level required to capture the scene.

I swear to you…

  … that I have not doctored the above picture… That woman in the middle there is not actually making any kind of contact with the ground as she walks along. And she was walking. Not skipping, or jumping… Just walking, like any normal woman from Cambodia Like anyone enjoying all those annoying, demanding, snot-nosed tourists… Like something from another planet… or a Douglas Adams book…
