Collaspe of one of the gates into Ta Prohm, Angkor Wat Archeological Park, Siem Reap, Cambodia.

I had always wanted to visit Ta Prohm.  Since the first pictures I had seen in my world history textbook as a teenager, this place had been on my bucket list. And so on our visit to Cambodia, you now know that Angkor Wat, and Ta Prohm in particular, would be on the agenda!

It was everything I had expected.  Trees growing up through the ancient ruins, roots running along the various buildings, uplifting and displacing many of the blocks of that once glorious temple complex. It was incredible, the blocks themselves, having been disturbed by the growing trees, were covered in many cases with lichens and mosses. It gave the place both a sense of ancientness and beauty.

This particular photograph shows just that.  An gnarled and ancient tree growing up from the ruins. The blocks of the once proud and mighty edifice are tumbled about, lifted and moved by the powerful roots of the tree. The delicate carvings on the blocks colored by green mosses and lichens, giving the place an even more ancient look and feel.

This is the palette of which the photographer gets to make her artwork – combining the artwork of the ancient Khmer people, the artwork of nature, and the artwork of this photograph.

If you would love to have this print hanging on your walls either at home or at the office, head over to my Fine Art America webpage for this print.  There you can select the kind of print – from a fine art print, to canvas, to metal, to acrylic – and you can choose a size and finish that suits your taste.  And it all is put together and arrives at your door, ready for you to hang or frame.

Psst . . . check these out . . .

Back in 1982, my Air Force roommate was in desperate need of some cash, and he had a camera. And I was in the market for a camera as I had TDY (Temporary Duty) orders for Cyprus and was looking for a good camera to take with me. So over some beers and some negotiations with my roommate (and a few hundred dollars later), I found that I had become the owner of a brand spanking new Canon AE-1 camera with an assortment of lens, including a Canon 50mm, a 35mm lens, as well as a telephoto lens. Fast forward to today, and I am now an owner of a Canon 5D Mark II (looking to upgrade, but waiting to see if Sony comes out with a 'A9' before I upgrade) and a bunch of Canon glass and I am primarily a landscape photographer. Yea, that means that I get up before the sun rises and am out after the sun sets. Makes for interesting times! Thank you for joining me on this photographic journey and hope to hear from you!
