Photographer's Note

I am sorry, I don't know the name of the temple this was taken at, but it is an small but active temple on the grounds of the Angkor Complex. The temple really is nothing more than a large buddha image along with other smaller related items, under a canopy. In front of this, is a flat area, probably created centuries ago by laying slabs of sandstone down on the ground. This lady, and two others were busy pulling weeds growing up out of the sandstone. She stopped her work long enough to flash this terrific smile.

Her clothing is very typical of rural Khmers, and the scarf she is wearing around her head is called a Krama, something Cambodia is quite well known for.
