Around Angkor Wat, there are many small temples.
I met him at one small temple among them.
His expression of calm and gentle smile remains in my mind. I hope he is still fine and will be fine for a while.

I like this portrait, the expression of the face and eyes.
As color, black and white photos of monks, are beautiful.

A pensive portrait in soft grey colours. I made a workshop to add some contrast and sharpness, but I do not know if the result is better. The portrait must not become too hard either, some softness must remain.

this is one more of your excellent portrait works. I like the POV. The idea of converting the image into B&W is good (though I very much like your colour photos, too!)
The man looks very kind and friendly. Perhaps he likes to think much about philosophic matters... and maybe he sees life so differently from us!
Should we envy or follow him?....:)
