Captured in grief

Photographer Jim Heston captures the King in mourning
I heard it was amazing to be there, I saw it on tv, as thousands flocked to the Royal Palace area yesterday to pay their respects to the King Father on the seventh day of mourning. The King and his mother came out of the palace to meet the thousands of monks and well-wishers and Jim Heston, more used to stalking the streets at night with his camera, snapped this excellent photo of King Norodom Sihamoni, displaying his grief for all to see. I'm sure Jim won't mind me posting it here, it's a fabulous photo and Jim's stuff just keeps getting better and better. Later, the rain came down in buckets to drench the crowds, but those that were there, will never forget it.
