Sharing moments in time…

Young Uros Girl


This young lady is a member of the Uros people on the floating islands of Lake Titicaca.  I thought she was tremendously photogenic and I took many images of her which I like.  The people of the islands were incredibly friendly and welcoming.  They face a very interesting challenge in maintaining their unique culture while being forced into a more integrated modern world.

  1. Wow. She’s beautiful, but looks very conflicted. Perhaps due to the cultural struggles you mentioned.

    • Rachael,
      Thanks for the comment. I think at this moment she was more conflicted about me taking her picture. She was much more comfortable and playful in some of the follow-on shots. I may post additional pics of her later. I took a look at your blog – nice! We’re going to the Katmai in August to take some pictures of Brown Bears.
