This Incan woman held up a baby lamb, hoping it created a photo op worth a few coins in Urubamba, Peru. Taking advantage of the opportunity, I shot the image and dutifully added to her coffers.

Just a retired old guy who loves looking for an eclectic mix of subjects to photograph, from people, to places, to concepts, and enjoys all aspects of the hunt, the find, and the shot, plus dabbling in the post production.

    Nice one, Phil. Q: What is with all the hats that don’t fit? Several of your pictures show this. :-)

    When the Brits were there in Peru, they wore the classic bowler hats. A large order came undersized for kids’ heads. The Brits gave them to their domestic help (Peruvian women) ….and the tradition began
