Bayon in Photos (highly edited photos)
Bayon was one of my favorite temples in Angkor, (Siem Reap, Cambodia). It is well known for the 200 or so faces that dominate each of its tall towers. Unfortunately for us, we reached it about noon, 7 hours into our day. The heat and the sun overhead made for a ton of crappy photos as I tried to snap quickly, so I could escape to the cooler inner passages.
Sooo since it is a well-known temple that has had plenty of others write about it, I’ll instead delight you (*cough*) with my new found love of the photo-editing program, Lightroom. Enjoy!

Apsaras in relief…actually I guess they are dancing.

Enter if you dare (but seriously it is way cooler inside)
Look another relief.
One of the big beautiful faces, notice how it is pieced together.
Apparently, this is a thing.
I loved how the light shone in.
Who loves Lightroom? ME!
Tourist photo – check.
Tomb of the dude who discovered Bayon. He took bricks from it to build his own tomb and gave himself the best view of it. o.O
