Pchum Ben Festival, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

I set out early this morning with a group of my coworkers who had invited me to take part in Pchum Ben, a 15-day religious festival in which Cambodians pay respect to their deceased relatives. Crouched barefoot in the corner of a colorful pagoda on the outskirts of Phnom Penh, small groups gathered to place offerings of food and money in front of robed monks who delivered the blessings.
