Photographer's Note

Lotus flower is one of the most plentiful flowers in Cambodia. Everywhere you travel you will find them in rivers, lakes, ponds, canals and even in roadside ditches. The flower is not only beautiful, it has symbolic meaning in Buddhist traditions because it roots in muddy water, then rises and blooms above the murk, it symbolizes enlightenment. The seeds can be eaten - I've tried quite delicious actually, and there is medicinal value in the roots, stamen and pedals.

I came across this in Phsar Leur market in Kampong Chhnang that just be inspired by the wonderful arrangement all were neatly displayed with flair and artistry. An impression of a Cambodian beauty that I simply couldn't resist taking.
