DESPUES DE 12P.M ToqueLa PuERTA - Cusco, Peru - Canon EOS XTi

A corner of the world that exists no where else that I got to experience. On the other hand, a scene of commonality making the world smaller than it is. I could go find a similar composition on one of the many streets in Denver occupied by Ma and Pop mechanics. A thousand miles away or around the corner on Colfax Ave. or Federal Blvd.? In the end its not important. What matters to me is that I like it and it invokes meaning and memories of experiences past. I love the story this scene creates in my mind. I’m drawn to the texture, the color, and the evolving message of the utilitarian signage.
