POTD Day 10 Man Made

In the winter between 2003 and 2004, my husband and I went to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. We had both been to Thailand many times at that point, and were there that December to help one of our friends celebrate his wedding, but figured while we were there, we would see some of the parts SE Asia that we had never seen.

So we made a trip from Bangkok, Thailand to Siem Reap, Cambodia and stayed there for four days touring all of the Angkor Wat area. We found this awesome driver the first day and hired him to show us around during our stay. Heang was great and we had some of the best experiences, and most of them were off the tourist agenda. We visited almost all of the temples and surrounding areas that we could manage in the four days.

We filled up our camera cards up the first day or so and ended up finding a shop where we could offload to CD and then free up our cards for more pics. It took me months to get through them all when we got home and get them labeled correctly. This shot is one of the guardian statues along the North Gate of Angkor Thom. There were thousands of faces through the entire complex created out of stone, and the amount of work that must have went into all those temples is just mind boggling. It really is one of the wonders of the world, and we are both so honored to have seen it.

I took this image with my JVC GC-QX5 with no flash. I edited it in GIMP 2.6 for light and color and then added the fuzzy border.
