The “Eyes of Age”


As Jerry Jeff Walker said (paraphrased to change gender)…”she looked to me to be the eyes of age”.  This woman was sitting outside a colonial cathedral in the little town of Andahuaylilas on the road between Cusco Peru and Puno.  The cathedral was on a delightful little picturesque square in a sleepy little town.  Most people were in traditional clothes including this woman who had more character in her face than John Wayne could have ever hoped for.  You’ve just got to imagine the life that she has led…..  This is another one of those images that I think is worth double clicking on – her face is amazing!

  1. Wondering where you were when you took this (relative to your subject). Do you speak to your subjects before you photograph them or are you at a distance and the subject unaware?

  2. Hi Cathy,
    In this case I asked to take her picture and was fairly close. That is a departure from my normal practice of trying to take candid pics and capture “real life”.
