This challenge was described as an opportunity to show some street photography. Excellent, as I love taking pictures EVERYWHERE I go. The biggest challenge for me was selecting the photos which best represented a fleeting moment – or two. I settled on some photos from a trip to Peru. The first three were taken at a festival in Chinchero, near Cuzco. I was totally overwhelmed by the color and clothing and how it was totally amazing to be in the midst of all the activity. There were very few tourists present, and we were able to share in the obviously joyous atmosphere. As I look back at my photos I am still in awe.
Here you can see the everyday activity on a street as we were leaving Chinchero.
This last photo isn’t the finest quality, but it was the best I could do as our bus was pulling away from the museum in Lima.
