weekly photo challenge: street life

Greetings, creative souls!!

When I first heard this week’s theme, I couldn’t help but think about the collection of street photog images I’ve collected over the years from my travels: Tahiti, Costa Rica, Baja – Mexico, Peru, and Bali. And I have boatloads of street photography from The States: California (my faves from Los Angeles/Hollywood), Hawaii, and even some ‘old-school’ photos from New York – hidden somewhere, way back when, when I was invited to the Macy’s Day Parade.

Oh, you never heard that story?

Well, it involved being strapped on to the tippy top of a ginormous cake, executing choreography, while Liza Minnelli sang LIVE in the background. Just imagine: Me (and my other dancer friends). On a cake. Whizzing by Radio Music City Hall. And LOTS of sparkly jazz hands. True story.

Those were the glory days (you should’ve seen the costumes). Oh dear, oh me, oh my.

Anyways.

When I saw this week’s photo challenge, Cuzco immediately popped into my mind. Speaking of which, FUN FACT: Cuzco (elevation: 11, 200 ft), once the center of the Inca Empire, is higher in elevation than Machu Picchu (elevation: 8,000 ft). I have pictures of us sucking in air with oxygen masks, compliments of the cute little bed and breakfast we stayed at, but I’ll spare you those images.

One thing is for sure – Brendon and I spent hours wandering around the main town center, Plaza de Armas, immersed in the beauty and the buzz. Click play to watch the video below:
