In Cambodia you meet hardly any old people on the streets, except of monks and nuns. The main reason of it were the Civil War and the destructive Pol Pot regime, which killed over 25% of the citizens of Cambodia.
I found this nice woman in the restaurant, near the Angkor Wat complex. Bhuddist monks and nuns are always willing to be photographed.

Wonderful portrait Karol! One of the best I have seen in a while. Man, great job with the lighting and general composition. It's extremely sharp as well. Great job capturing this interesting face.

This nun has such a beautiful face, and you can tell that she has a beautiful soul, too. It is a wonderful portrait, with a good choice of B/W.
