Novice Monks

Shot this along the river inPhnom Penh when I was walking back to my hotel from the Royal Palace.

Monks themselves aren’t that exciting when you live over in Asia. They are very common and not a big deal. I will say I saw more monks in Cambodia than I do in Thailand. Well, I should say I see more monks during the day in Cambodia than I do in Thailand because I constantly see the Thai monks collecting alms in the wee hours of the morning here in Thailand.

I liked this image because you just have the contrast of the rather dull scene with the splash of color from the monks robes.

The colors of the Monk’s garments are bright. Any reason for the color orange? The sky is pretty in this photo. A lot of drama in those clouds. Also, I presume that is a body of water where the Monk’s are standing. It is a very nice photo. I enjoyed.
