Travel Photo: Buddhist Monk poses at Angkor Wat, Cambodia

As a travel photographer, I am always looking to take interesting pictures. But, sometimes images from magazines and websites stick in your head and you wish to recapture those moments in your camera. I got caught in such a moment too and came running to take a photo of a Buddhist monk only to realize that the Buddhist monk was getting his picture taken in front of Angkor Wat just like other tourists.

This moment came as a surprise to me as sometimes you think why would a Buddhist monk need his photo taken when the person has given his life to serving the god. Why would be interested in trivial mortal pleasure? But here, he had hired a photographer and was posing in front of the important monuments and photographic locations of Angkor Wat. I took this photo by getting beside the monk’s photographer. I was wrong in not asking for permission, but I could not afford to waste the moment.
