Cambodian Lady

In 2009 we traveled to Siem Reap in Cambodia. I photographed this Cambodian lady at the Angkor Wat temple complex, busy recycling plastic bottles. Siem Reap is extremely hot ­and bottled water is consumed in high volumes by all the visitors, therefore this lady is making a living by collecting and recycling bottles.

Incense

I took this photo of a coil burning incense in one of the temples in Hong Kong. These coils can burn for an extended period from hours to days and is commonly used by Chinese culture for religious ceremonies like ancestor veneration. (Ancestral veneration in Chinese culture is the practice of living family members who try to provide a deceased family member with continuous happiness and well-being in the afterlife).

Phuket is a tourist destination, and you will always find tourists from around the world on the beach.
