One of the things that we love about Cambodia are the people; especially the kids. They live hard lives, yet they always have a smile on their faces and are happy to see you. Most people only take photos of the temples, but I find the people in Cambodia so much more interesting to photograph. I found this girl just sitting on her bike on the edge of the jungle. I took her photo and then walked up to show her the photo on the camera. She looked at her own image and gave me a big smile. Hopefully it makes you smile as well.
During our first 2 days visiting Petra I was not happy with the photos I was taking of Petra’s most iconic structure, the Treasury. On our second day visiting the site I noticed a person high up on the cliffs above the structure and I knew that I had to get up there. On the morning of our third day we spoke to several guides about how to get up there and found that there is a stairway that leads to the top. We followed the guides directions and found the ancient and heavily worn stone stairway leading up. 700 steps later we arrived at the top and then had to traverse through brush and rock to get to the lookout we sought. Upon reaching the spot we found a small shelter and two Bedouins enjoying morning tea. They invited us into their shelter and offered us tea. Here is the photo from that spot.
