Married Man and Official, Taquile Island, Titicaca Lake

Married Man and Official, Taquile Island, Titicaca Lake

Knitting of all kinds of traditional crafts is men's business on Taquile island of Titicaca lake. They also have interesting "color code" or specific form of hat defining social status. Here on the left you see married man, on the right an official for islanders community.

That official on the right was writing down a description of me to be later subimitted to Peruvian secret services... These guys are not as innocent as they look...

A terrific cultural photo Eldar with good colors and skin tones.... and the expressions, goofy as they are, are really quite interesting. But what I really like about this photo is the information that I have gleaned .... look at those hats.... look how they fit these guys' heads.... surely, this is where condoms were invented. And now I know:) Ciao, Michael.

Actually, they were very distracted by our shootings, so I was hiding in the crowd and took this shot from about 30 m (!) away, LOL !

nice to get a couple of men posing for you

Yes, if look could kill, I would've been dead by now, LOL ! I found Peruvians, regardless of location, very hesitant and unwilling to be taken pictures of unless you approach them with dollar bill in the hand !

It seems that they will be taking away the photographers life in the next shot as they does not looks quite friendly ;-)
