Postcards from Peru

Not what you might expect on a postcard, but I do like my Street images! These were taken from a coach as we drove to Plaza des Armes in Lima…

  1. I like how the yellow shirt contrasted with the darker door, yet complimented the yellow paintwork around it.
    (Shame about the rubbish though…)
    Nicely done, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Yes, you’re right the yellow helps blend the rubbish (a little)
    Oooh Lima – I’m waiting to see more 🙂

    • Sue

      There’s very little of Lima, sadly as it was about 35centigrade and I pretty well collapsed quite quickly, not managing to get the photographs I would have liked. But that’s life with MS…..

  3. Love the colours on the buildings. How many ports did your cruise visit?

  4. the man with the yellow t-shirt makes a good composition, Sue

  5. I’d enjoying getting a postcard like this. Oh, wait. I just did. Thanks for thinking of me, Sue, and I love abundance of yellow.

  6. Ver good colour contrast in your shots, Sue. When did you visit Peru?

    • Sue

      Thanks, Dina! I went on a fly cruise in March, which started in Peru – I actually saw very, very little of Peru, but the whole trip was a great experience

  7. Love the yellow and blue. 🙂 Great shots, Sue. You really have a good eye for a photo that works.

  8. Street photography is not about finding the perfect surrounding, it’s capturing an instant of life. I think this is great!

  9. Perfect placement yet again. I like the doubled image, and the way you caught the lead girl looking at you in the second one.

    • Sue

      Thanks, Meg! My reactions seem to be still OK…these were taken in an instant, from a moving bus, so one has to be quick on the draw, and always with an eye for a potential image!

      • From a moving bus? That adds another dimension to genius!

      • Sue

        I always have the camera in manual mode, so it’s the work of an instant most of the time to set a fast shutter speed, select the righ aperture and go….sometimes it fails, though!! So not a complete genius, Meg!

  10. I like the contrast. Nice capture👍

  11. Super second image, Sue. The people are perfectly placed, especially the man in yellow against the dark blue – couldn’t be better.

  12. The yellow shirt is like a piece of the wall going walking.

  13. This is fabulous. All this playful yellow, even in the rubbish.
