Nothing attracts attention like a red dress.Laura Bush
With a challenge from Amy (The World Is a Book) to post juxtapositions of old and new, we were reminded of our day touring Angkor Wat near Siem Reap, Cambodia. Unexpectedly to us, a number of visitors had arrived onsite with the express purpose of having their pictures taken against the dramatic backdrop of one of the world’s most interesting ancient structures.
And clever these locals and tourists were, as well. They evidently all got the same message: Red is the color that shows up best against the grays of the aging sandstone blocks.
Between takes, those to be photographed situated themselves in various positions or checked their email on new technology.
If you want something new, you have to stop doing something old.Peter Drucker
But not all were posing for a photographer. As this quick capture reveals, monks, too, take selfies at the largest religious monument in the world.
And why not? There’s no better place than this for a little new with a whole lotta old.
