My fourth of my Inca Trail series has us in the Sacred Valley of the Urubamba River.
There is not a location there where you could not turn a full circle and find a spectacular site, but then what is spectacular to me I’ve found is not always the same for you.
Here we find life not changed much over the last couple hundred years or so, maybe some of the roads are paved and now there are the tourists like me who snap pictures with cameras and cell phones or worse yet, set up an easel to paint. Well the world moves on around them, for the better and for the worse.
Inspired by the song “Peponi” from the Piano Guys, (Swahili for Paradise) about a girl and her innocense she maintains through dreams.
I do this regularly through my art as it shields me from the turmoils of the world.
