Where was this photo taken?
Pisaq, Peru Date, time of day, and weather conditions?
Jan 29th 2012, 11:04 AM, warm but dry weather What were your feelings or impressions when taking this photo?
When I turned back and saw them walking in the middle of the market full of tourists I felt tenderness, but also a bit sad.
Their hometown is invaded by tourists all the time and walking around with their traditional clothes is one of the few chances to get some money/benefit from that.
Pisaq is a small town in the Sacred Valley, and on Sundays the market is more active and full of people. What kind of camera and/or lens did you use?
They used to practice exchange of items but it's starting to be less common now.
Nikon D7000 What tips or suggestions do you have for other photographers?
, Nikor 18-105 lenses (40mm focal length used)

Thus, with the majority of construction still in great condition, the Pisac ruins are undoubtedly a true marvel overlooking the Sacred Valley and Urubamba River
