Walk in peace

“The mind can go in a thousand directions, but on this beautiful path, I walk in peace. With each step, the wind blows.  With each step, a flower blooms.” ~ Thich Nhat Hanh

This was another of my “shooting from the hip” episodes.  I was going back to my transportation when I looked back and saw this monk walking towards the sunlit temples of Angkor Wat, from where I just had my sunrise shoot.  As the sun rose and cast a golden glow on its path, this monk became all the more visible and translucent, making his dignified stance a joy to behold in a backdrop of archaeological significance.

What made me took a shot instinctively, though, were the silhouette of his ears.  It fused with the patterns of the temples.
