OX CART RIDES THROUGH CAMBODIA
OX CART RIDES THROUGH CAMBODIA

In the countryside on the outskirts of Siem Reap, Cambodia it is the Oxcarts who rule the roads. After a full day of shooting and wandering endlessly on foot past rolling rice paddies, silk farms, and pineapple stands we stopped this kind man and hitched a ride to the nearest town to wind down for the evening. @rusticpathways

Living With Monks
Living With Monks

The Abbott Monk stands beneath the Buddhist Mural Of Life in the Wat Pho Monastery in Northern Thailand. Each morning while living at the monastery we would awake at 4:30 AM on our blanket-less cots to prepare for the day and collect alms from the community. We would then join in the monastery for our first and only meal of the day - all of which is always donated from the community. If the community does not give, the monks do not eat. Our days were filled with endless sitting meditations. I was able to truly experience life as a buddhist nun, Bhikkuni, and was given a first hand authentic look into the life of a Thai monk. @rusticpathways

People come from all over the world to bathe in the salt filled water of the Dead Sea. The mud is said to heal numerous physical ailments and many come from worldwide in search of treatment. This man comes to the Sea every day in search of treatment as well. Each day covering his body in mud awaiting for his cure. @natgeo

The Western Wall, also known as the Kotel, in Jerusalem is the holiest of Jewish sites. People come from all over the world to write notes of prayer to god and then place them within the ancient stones of the wall as way to send their prayer to heaven. @natgeo
