Elder of Way Bo, Siem Reap, Cambodia

Wat Bo in Siem Reap, Cambodia is one of my favorite places to photograph. Upon entering the grounds there is just a sense of decompression and peace. The main temple is usually locked but the guy sitting here, the pagoda elder, has always been happy to unlock it and let me make photos. Sometimes, if he isn’t too busy with other duties, he is happy to pose. I like this shot because of the western couple in the background looking out of the windows. The image itself is a little noisy, ISO1250, but I think simulates film grain and in this case add to the photo. No matter how much you plan when making a photo a little serendipity always helps.
