Monk portrait, Phnom Penh (potw #16)
Phnom Penh was the last stop on my Mekong trip. I didn’t take that many pictures on this visit; I was only there for a couple of nights, and I wasn’t quite in the mood for a big city, having spent the previous two weeks in quieter, more relaxing surroundings.
Wat Langka, however, is one of the more tranquil spots in Phnom Penh. It’s not the most spectacular temple in Cambodia, but I like its calm, welcoming atmosphere. It’s hard to tell where the surrounding alleyways end and the temple complex begins. This young monk was standing inside one of the side doors to the main temple, and was perfectly, indirectly lit by the morning sunshine outside.
