She was truly in the middle of nowhere. I did not see her
until I was a few feet away. I said hello which is difficult
in Khmer and got no response. So I handed her a
lollipop but she did not reach out for it. I showed her the
camera and took the shot. The first sign of emotion I got
was when I showed her the image in the viewfinder. There
was a hint of a smile or maybe I just want to imagine there was.
Notice how the leaves are being eaten by pests.
