Photographer's Note

It was late afternoon. THE light was coming on angkor Wat. THE light is the 2-3 minutes where the light is at its best on Angkor. At that moment, It seems like the ruins are litteraly on fire (see that in a later post...;) ).

But then came those 10 monks taking pictures of themselves in front of the lotus pond. I started shooting like a silly boy...then the National Geographic reporter (see his reportage on Cambodia in june) started shooting too...then the crowd started surrounding us (the monks, me, the NAt Geo photographer).

And then came the donkey...he started swimming ten meters into the pond, went around and came right back to the monks...and stayed there for the pose for like 2-3 minutes.

Everyone was in awe...I thought it was amazing.

"this happens all the time here"

This is what the National Geograpic told me while he was pushing the shutter on his Canon. He took like 300 pics of this situation. I told him, woa this is special! Well, no, it is not. What makes this special is the light, but seriously, it happens all the time...

ah well...I thought it was pretty amazing anyway...
