The Khmers in Angkor Wat, never invented glass, but they found a way to construct a window, that would let air & light in, & keep unwelcome guests out. Taken in Angkor Wat (12th century).

Patterns !
Nice lines of these patterns, also are the broken lines and textures, nice pic, Chris !

Nice pattern and tone. It's nice how they all look alike and at the same time all different.

ooohhh, love the colours and textures, they speak of centuries of wear and tear, thanx, (*_*)

Great image and interesting note. I like it very much. Nino

beautiful patterns and textures chris :)
good note as well, i didn't realise the Khmers never had glass :)

I have to agree with Talisman here, they are all so same and yet so different. Very nice catch :) :) :)

Nice textures and patterns Chris ..also the desaturate look looks fine to me !!

And it is HOT all year, so no worry about being cold with the window open. Nice shot!

Very interesting Chris! And this window would also make the place cooler on the hot times too. Clever weren't they?
