Angkor Wat Cleaner

Wat Cleaner

I met this man up inside Angkor Wat.  His job is to make sure the floors are clean.  We exchanged greetings and I asked him a question about an inscription I read in one of the carvings on the temple wall (specifically about Preah Se-Ah Metrei, a promised coming savior in the Buddhist scriptures).  Because the language is some type of Old Khmer, most of it cannot be read, but I was suprised to find that certain religious words can be made out.  I asked him after talking if I could take his picture, he obliged, and there is the result.

    One more step to the right and the sun would interfere with the composition, beautiful detail in the shade, no need for HDR here, great shot!
