Peru – #Lake Titicaca

September 13, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Sitting at 3800 meters in altitude, Lake Titicaca is the highest navigable lake in the world. We spend a night out in the home of a family in one of the communities around the lake, and visited Uros, the famous floating islands. We found the floating islands to be interesting, but not authentic. The local people who have lived there for hundred of years no longer make their living off their environment, but off tourism, so the experience was a somewhat manufactured one for the tourist dollar. Having said that, it is still fascinating to see how people live in such different parts of the world.

    Hi Jared,

    I really like your photos. You have a really nice balance of landscape and portrait shots. I especially like the photos of the kids – fabulous expressions. And extremely cool use of the ultra-wide lens 🙂
