After the difficult hike up to Humantay Lake, we had to make the decision on how we would reach AguasCalientes. Originally we were determined to complete the entire process on our own with only means of transportation being collectivos and a lot of walking. After the first hike kicked our bus we settled on a decision to compromise: we would take a bus to Hydroelectica and then hike to AguasCalientes. Through our hostel (Pariwana Hostel) we booked the shuttle ($15), rode for 5 hours over the steep cliffs along the Urubamba river, ate lunch, and then began the hike along the train track and river for 3 hours with a group of Mexican girls and one French girl. Remember it is an active train track so don’t get too close to it as it passes by (as Analeise learned when she tried taking a photo of the train and it briefly missed her). By the end of it, Analeise, Ana (the French girl), and myself were the only ones left after taking our time, stopping for snack and water breaks, and taking so many photos.
Peru, Peru, Peru. I am not sure how I’m going to explain this trip. Sure, I can write out the details: the places we went, the things I saw, so on, so forth. But how do I begin to explain what it meant to me? I’ve decided to break this trip up to several parts- trying to cram it all into one post would get extremely lengthy and we would all lose focus halfway through. Somehow I’ll try to fit into words how awing this time was for me. And if in the scenario I do not fulfill that duty then I hope my photos will. Continue reading
*Taken with a Nikon FE and Kodak Ultramax 400 film.
Hi, yall! I’ll keep this short! Below are the photos of my first ever manually set film taken while I was working last month in Germany and Hawaii. My camera apparently has a light leak, which show in some of the photos. Unfortunately, I didn’t know it before, but it’s all part of the experience and learning process! Still, I think my first roll came out pretty neat and I’m very satisfied with them! Let me know what you think!
I realized just now that I never showed you all the photos I took on a disposable camera from when I visited Seattle in August of 2013 (wow, that feels oddly so distant, and yet, as if it was only yesterday). Enjoy! I hope everyone had a badass Tuesday and continues to have a great week. Keep your chin up! As always, bisoux. X Mary Anna
