Sharing moments in time…

Weekly Photo Challenge: Windows


I’m not at home and don’t have access to my photo library but I did recall this one that I had accessible.  I took this walking down one of the alleys/streets in the beautiful town of Cusco, Peru.  There was lots of hustle and bustle down on the street but somehow this single window with a single man staring down at the noisy street caught my eye.  I also knew as I snapped it that it had to be a  black and white.  Hope you enjoy.
