Thanks, all of you. Machu Picchu is filled with opportunities for window and doorway shots. I´m not strong and agile enough to get to the more distant parts of the site from which people get wonderful panoramic views. I think this made me look harder for the opportunities where I was. I´ll just have to enjoy other people´s sweeping photos of the site.
A very strong and beautiful photo, Marilyn. I'm so glad to see you posting from your trip! Gold stars *** for this image. Your eye makes up for any shortcomings in your mind, as you always seem to find a unique composition. Now that I know you are posting I will check in more often! (No need to reply - I know how traveling and panoramio are difficult ;)) My best to you, alicia
Amazing and beautiful! ahmeth
Beautiful photo MARILYN Greetings from Austria. Marita
Superb capture, Marilyn! Welcome back - it seems you had a wonderful trip...
Funky! You get around a bit don't you Marilyn?
That's my great favourite, Marilyn! It's the kind of photo, I would be ready to do any journey for and take all troubles to get it. What is done to keep it pleasant for tourists, is done in a careful, not too obvious way. There is everything in it, the high mountains, some signs of people of centuries gone by, finally the vegetation which tells us, that nature always is stronger than any buildings humans erect.
As for the photo, I love the steplike little terraces, which again stress on the steepness of those places - an always present fear, I guess, that the children might fall down. It's great, that you show us the inside of the wall of the window, which I know, was intended. It keeps an interesting connection and I feel, that I am standing there. I am glad, that you avoided to take the obvious tourists' photos, though I didn't expect you to do anything of the sort. ;)
It's a wonderful, romantic photo, but to live there would be a nightmare. It's amazing, to see, where people are able to exist.
Thank you, Marilyn for your lovely collection, which show us something of the world, which is so far in time and space, yet so near, because the people had their struggles to go through their life as we all have to do, more or less comfortable, different circumstances, sure - but at the end we all have to let go, no matter, where we live. I dare say that, since both of us were born in the same year. :)
Best wishes and take care, May
You have given us another fantastic view through a window, not just any window but one of the most spectacular views in the world. Thank you Marilyn. Regards Anita
Thank you for your generous comments Alicia, ahmeth, Nicols, Marita, Michael, Rachel, May, Anita, and Michael. Machu Picchu offers amazing photographic abilities, and I'm happy if my window view gave you some "feel" for the place--perhaps a more intimate view than the more common wide vistas.
In that area of Peru, the remains of Inca terraces are still often visible on the mountainsides. There they were used for raising crops, and some current agriculture still uses them! It is likely that some of these, too, were used for agriculture.
Greetings from Belgrade!
Thank you, izahorizonta, and greetings from Canada!
Marilyn, I have very much enjoyed your beautiful photos of Peru. I have always wanted to visit there, and hope to in the future. I hope I can capture the plase as beautifully as you have. -Andy
