She tended her shrine well. I did not speak to her. Just watched as she lit the incense in the darkness of the temple.
Angkor Thom temple.

So you've been to Cambodia, i'll bet that was a great trip. For me the whole Angkor complex was one of the most beautiful buildings made by man i've ever seen. I walked here, but no little kid dressed in purple playing with fire waiting for me. And it is that kid what draws my attention, even more than the much larger statue. Your exposure here is also something to hold still...very clever to catch the movement of her hand and the fire glow. Makes it more dynamic, less static. Last point your light management, not easy in those alleys, but you did a great job here.....excellent work.

What an awesome picture! I like the old statue of the Budha in contrast to the young girl. Awesome job! Thanks for sharing.
