Terraces, Machu Picchu

The Inca Trail left me out of breath and Machu Picchu took my breath away.  I’m lucky to still be alive.

We hiked for 7 hours, walking up steps that were as steep as walls.  We only stopped due to exhaustion, for photo opportunities, and to learn about the incredibly insane history of Cuzco and the architecture beneath our feet and in the distance.

  1. Super interpretation of a place I’ve often seen in photos, but am yet to get to. It’s on the list, of course.

    Thanks for following my blog, good luck with yours and I’ll keep coming back to see you you’re going. Cheers, Richard

    • Thanks! Most recently, my process begins with one or two photos. I stretch the images to my liking on a digital photoshop canvas, and then decide which shapes I want to emphasize with line drawings. Thanks for checking it out and commenting!

  2. Looks like you can just reach out and grab that cloud!!

    Also I’m surprised you didn’t write a hike-ku for this one, heh.
