Look closely–yep, that’s the Buddha through the doorway at Bayon in Siem Reap, Cambodia.
The editor of The Camel Saloon, Russell Streur, after he had seen some photos I submitted along with some of my poetry, came up with this cool idea about having an online photo exhibition of some of the photos I have taken during my travels around Asia.
