Category and Expertise: Culture|Travel/Tourism, Non-Professional


Entry Description: I was born in Jakarta, Indonesia and now, living in Cambodia. I'm just an ordinary house wife of an expatriate living and traveling abroad to many countries who love arts and willing to share the world I've seen in my eyes.This old man was one of the temple's guardian in Tonle Bati, Cambodia. He was smoking and carving a block of wood, maybe for his ashtray; ignoring all the tourists and other guardians who were busy trying to get some money from tourists. When I took the shot, he looked at me for few seconds and returned to do his business. I was captured by his unique presence in the temple.
