Postcards From Readers: 12th-century temple in Angkor, Cambodia

The photographer: John Fleischman of Granite Bay

Behind the lens: Ta Som is a small temple at Angkor, Cambodia, built near the end of the 12th century for King Jayavarman VII. I took this photo during the early morning hours before the arrival of most tourists. I was particularly fascinated by how the large Ficus tree has grown over the temple ruins.
