Buddha with Lotus #2

The Royal Palace Phnom Penh is a popular tourist attraction.
After hearing the story of Buddha’s birth, I took this closely cropped face with the mystical blossom to establish an intimate personal connection as well as to block the other visitors from my viewfinder! Upon my return home, I showed it to Neil Garvey, publisher of Creations Magazine and he said it would be a perfect cover photo for the next issue of the magazine. (see cover pdf)
