Photographer's Note

Near the Royal Palace in Phnom Penh on the banks of the Bassac river, I met this old woman who gave me lotus flowers so I could make an offering to a nearby pagoda. She was very friendly and welcoming and even though I am not a Buddhist, I felt I couldn't refuse. Anyway, I lumbered along and made the offering and she allowed me to take her photo. She has a shaved head which is customary for Cambodian women who take religious vows for a period of time. The lotus flowers and incense are the basic offerings.
