Ollantaytambo village, 5/5/2012, 10:00 a.m., in clear, perfect weather.

I wanted to record the pace of life in this village.

We were headed on to Machu Picchu - I returned to Ollantaytambo two days later.

I used a Fujifilm EXR 16 MB, point and shoot digital, auto focus & auto shutter.

Tips for other photographers:
Be respectful of the residents and ask before shooting if you want to photograph children or faces.
