Featured Photo: In the Shade – Maras, Peru

This is another one of those afterthought photos that turned out pretty well.  I was on a tour that included the salt mines of Maras and the Inca ruins at Moray, which I wrote about in the second chapter of my Peru travel journal.

On our way back from Moray the bus drove through the village of Maras, a town comprised primarily of old colonial buildings, most of which are still in use.  We didn’t have time to explore the village since it was only a half-day tour, but when the bus briefly stopped I stuck my camera out the window and quickly snapped this photo so I would have at least one clean shot of some of the buildings.  In the process I captured this local woman sitting in the shade, away from the heat of the sun.
