Jim and I were on a bus tour to Ollantaytambo and Pisco when the bus stopped at the top of a mountain and out rushed the children. Tourists love a colorfully dressed local, and the shutters were clicking…mine right along with them. Although, I only took this one shot.
Peru is one of the most photogenic countries I’ve visited. The faces of the people are so ancient. They definitely evoke a different time, a different world. A time of kings, warriors, sacirifices. A time that we can now only fantasize about.
Having their photo taken to make a few soles, these children are part of our modern world. Should they be?
