The World Heritage Centre at the UNESCO website describes Angkor in the following way:
‘Angkor is one of the most important archaeological sites in South-East Asia. Stretching over some 400 km2, including forested area, Angkor Archaeological Park contains the magnificent remains of the different capitals of the Khmer Empire, from the 9th to the 15th century. They include the famous Temple of Angkor Wat and, at Angkor Thom, the Bayon Temple with its countless sculptural decorations. UNESCO has set up a wide-ranging program to safeguard this symbolic site and its surroundings.’
I have always been interested in photography as an art form for I admire the skills needed to take a great photo. So, with the guidance of an able photographer and guide from Angkor Photography Tours (http://www.angkorphotographytours.com), I learned how to properly use my camera.
In less than three days, I took close to 1,300 images and I wish I could show them all to you. With great difficulty, I chose the following to share here. Gallery 1 is what I call the ‘quality’ photos. Gallery 2 is what I call ‘story’ photos. These are the ones that all have a story behind them. In my next post, I’ll share these stories. For now, enjoy the photos.
