I’ve been enjoying tinkering with old photos lately and trying to bring out a new perspective in them. The truth is, when you take most normal photographs, they come out a big bland and gray. Everything kind of washes together and you don’t get a good feel for a place.
The truth about Cusco’s Plaza de Armas is that it feels a bit “overexposed.” The sun is very intense there, and it’s one of those unique situations where you can walk around and recognize the air is cold, but the sun feels like it’s cooking you.
Anyway, I’ve just been going through some old photos and touching them up to make them interesting. Enjoy:
That line of buildings in the background is semi-dead during the day, but it lights up with discos at night.
