Peru - People on the streets of Cusco

February 02, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

Well, back to photos from Peru. Still some I haven't uploaded to the site. So for this week, two photos from the streets of Cusco.

 On the first image, there's a woman and her daughter in colorful Peruvian costumes, holding a small lamb. They get several Soles for letting tourists taking a photo with them. Although I've seen quite a few Peruvian women dressed in a similar fashion around Cusco, selling photos to Tourists, this one caught my attention becuase of the place they were sitting - the combination of the strong light-shadow contrast and the colorfult costumes seem to complement each other.

 The second image is of a Peruvian woman begging on a small alley. This woman's clothes were much duller in colors, but something in her expression and pose caught my attention. I gave her several soles for her permission of taking this image. I took several images of her, without a flash, so the colors and contrast will remain natural.
