The Hidden Faces of Cambodia

Mysteries abound in this strange land as do hidden faces.  The stillness of the air at Ta Prohm and the buzzing of the cicadas in the early pre-dawn light left me with a feeling of unease.  We were not alone.

    Faces are always hidden. You just have to look for them.

    I like these “hidden” photos and the theme of this post. I have to see more of Asia.

    Gorgeous photos; reminds me a bit of being watched by all the gargoyles on my college campus–only none of those were amidst trees!

    I found you through ExpatInterviews, btw, and I’ll be reading more of you 🙂

    Julian, thanks for stopping by again. Your comments are too kind. BTW, your photos from Puerto Rico are terrific. I love the photo of the cloud.

    Thanks Stevo. Your time for traveling will come. I envy you being in China. I really really miss it there sometimes. The ease of day trips and weekend wanderings still beckon.

    Sognatrice, thank you. Expat Interviews has certainly interviewed some amazing people. Thanks so much for stopping by. I just checked out your blog. It’s first rate. It’s always good to meet another woman out there living large.
