Weekly Photo Challenge: Faces


Love this challenge.  I’ve chosen some faces from our South America trip:

The first is of a woman in a little village in Peru.  One of those “every line tells a story” kind of faces…..

History behind those eyes...

and since the challenge title was plural, I thought I’d add a contrasting image.  I published a picture in one of my first posts of a young Uros girl from the floating islands of Lake Titicaca – just to show that “cute” runs in the family, here is a photo of her brother – every bit as captivating.

a face for the future

And just because it fits well with the challenge, a picture of a young vendor outside one of the Incan ruins – with many faces.

Fresh faces

    • Jo, – thank you so much. You’ve made my day – I’m glad you liked them. And I agree with your characterization – Peru was awesome and a great mix of the old and new both in cultures and the people themselves. An amateur photographers dream.
