Beautiful shot! ")
not a church, but city hall, I believe...
Miraflores is a district of the Lima Province in Peru. Known for its shopping areas, gardens, flower-filled parks and beaches, it is one of the upscale districts that make up the city of Lima.
Originally founded as San Miguel de Miraflores, it was established officially as a district on January 2, 1857. As a result of the Battle of Miraflores fought during the War of the Pacific, Miraflores got the designation of Ciudad Heroica ("Heroic City").

At the moment I can´t confirm the identity of the building. I know that there was a large church in the same block farther to the right.
This photo shows how we need to be open to "what happens." I was trying to take a photo of the scene when the two people walked up ... and stopped. My first thought was "Get out of my picture!" Then I realized they were adding to that picture!
Hello Marilyn. Here is Pepe "Missing" (Sorry, I've too much work). Now, in the summer, I hope to recover time visiting a gallery as interesting as this. Let's start the travel! Greetings. Pepe
Welcome, Pepe. I understand your busy-ness, and thank you for your visit. Greetings, Marilyn
Marilyn great fountain from such an exotic place all the best for the NPC Steve
But how on earth is it so bright at f/3, ISO100 and 1/4s exposure?
...because it was taken with a digital Olympus SP550UZ camera? (as is also indicated in the EXIF data block)
I'd imagine that taken with an old analog type camera of comparable quality the image would come out about as well, ignoring for a moment the fact that digital photo capturing chips don't have the exact same light recording attributes as common 35mm film... just my guess, I'm not an expert.
Many thanks, Steve, for your long-ago comment!
biggerben, I can't explain it. I looked back at the original to see whether I'd made any conspicuous changes in editing it, but I hadn't.
And thank you, ©Würmer, for your contibution. Isn't it good to have the EXIF information back on Panoramio!
What surprises me is that it's tolerably sharp. I don't know whether I found anything to lean back against, but I know there was nothing to put the camera on.
my-o-my, you DO have a calm hand then, Marylin...
I had thought "surely she had used a tripod" (or something)...

Great shot, beautiful night picture.
Thanks, galfer, for your visit and comments.
and Würmer, I'm too lazy to take a tripod on a long trip like that. I'm usually too lazy to take one on a short trip, though you'll be glad to know I do own one!
so do I, Marilyn, but don't ask me where it is... :((
So beautiful lights of the night! I like it! Cheers, Misi
A wonderful photo of the fountain in front of the "Parque Kennedy" in Miraflores. The building is our Municipality, and the street is Av. Larco . You were there during the exhibition of the wonderful photos of Yann Arthus-Bertrand, La tierra vista desde el cielo. The earth from above
