    Taken during a stroll through Ankor Thom, adjacent to Ankor Wat. I have printed this in a crop and it's my current wall favorite.

      This is a great photo. I love the bright orange robes against the gray. But I suppose everyone will. But the TITLE? Nicely irreverent.

      Thanks! It's a little off center, because I was a bit apprehensive taking the shot- felt like I was stealing it. Oh...stealing glimpses...that could be a good title for something. Yep - they are climbing these 1300+ year old carved steps that are only about 4 inches wide, and worn concavely, in flip flops. In another part of the temple complex, I decided to go up as well, and it took me a good 15 minutes to head up - not banging the camera, trying not to look down, trying not to think that there was nothing really to grab hold of if I fell....all smoothed edges worn gripless over time. Unless, I suppose, you're wearing rubber soled flip flops, and a skirt.

      @Delphines - thanks as always!

      @Che-burashka, @beccafromchatham, thank you for the comments!

      Sometimes I think it's a good thing that I don't have photoediting software, because I've been tempted to set this horizontally and crop it. But as time wares on, so does the slant.

      Excellent - the striking contrast is wonderful, but I also like the near symmetry.

      This is a superb image - and a fine piece of photo work between you and your lens.

      WELL done.

      superb! I like the slightly off centred composition and also the flash of color against the stark b/w...
