HPR Photography


This is a series of photograph I took while in Peru on two separate occasions. The first was to hike the Inca Trail to Machu Pichu. and the second was to recover some of the pictures from Machu Pichu. Both were fascinating trips, and while some of the excursions overlapped, there were some differences and I was able to see a lot of different things. The reason for the two trips was because I lost my camera on the first trip, and only had pictures from most of the Inca trail, as I had changed memory cards before the final day coming into Machu Pichu. So I didn't get any of the pictures I had taken in Machu Pichu and in Lima. While I still don't have the pictures I had taken in Lima, I intend to go back some time and retake many of those also.
