angkor wat in photos

i have finally finished editing my photos. {actually, i finished a few days ago, but there was an unexpected lingering traveler’s, um, gift that required medical attention. i’m fine now, but let’s say that sometimes the cure can be as bad as the disease!}. and i wanted to share them with you. {i’m *dying* to share my medical story with you, too, but the hubby says it’s just. too. gross. so i’m sparing you. you probably have a good imagination anyway.} these images, plus many more, are up on my flickr page.

trying to capture all the sweeping grandeur of each temple seemed futile. for that i bought a lovely postcard. besides, you know i’m a detail-oriented gal. i stuck to photographing the smaller–but equally compelling–details of each place.

every temple had lions. so i have lots of photos of lions.

the lotus blossoms in the pools in front of angkor wat were pretty, even when shot in the heat of the day. they were wilting just like us.

i told you i wanted to ride an elephant. and i did. i also spent time petting them. they are such cool creatures.

the “driver” steers with his feet against the elephants ears, and the elephants just plod along.

and the buddhas. so many super cool buddhas.

these are the best of what’s up on flickr so far. i’ll work on getting our second day up there soon.
