Bayon

The Bayon, Angkor Thom, Cambodia 2001: This local guide posed  impassively,  but without the wry grin of the stone faces that make up the “Bayon” temple.  It was the hottest time of the year in Cambodia (april) and she was annoyed that  I wouldn’t pay her for a guided tour-  hey, I was a broke backpacker, & ran outta $ a few days later in Phnom Penh! The Bayon (12th cent) was the last state temple to be built at Angkor, consisting of 216 gigantic stone faces that stare down from the temple towers.                Canon EOS 100/Sigma 28-105
