Machu Picchu

I arrived on Machu Picchu on Dec. 11th, 2007 and took this photo from a lookout point. It is the location of most the photo's taken of Machu Picchu so I had to get the shot. At this point I am completely overwhelmed by the breathtaking view. It is something everyone should see sometime in their lifetime.
The Sacred Rock.
A nice sunset view.
I climbed the peak of Wayna Picchu. One of the most challenging tasks I have ever been faced with both mentally and physically.
I snapped one last pic before I started down.

Buenos Aires Misc. Pics

These are misc. pics I took while walking around the city.

Mausoleums at the the Recoleta Cemetery, Buenos Aires

The view inside these mausoleums were powerful. None of these photo's have been altered any whatsoever. The spaces of the dead are often raided for precious gold and silver. You see human remains and completely devastated spaces disrespecting the belongings of the dead. I could not believe what I was seeing. I wanted to capture it in these photographs which are glimpses within these intimate and yet often public intruded spaces of the the dead. You can check out more of these photo's at my Flickr page.
