I am still processing my two-week trip to Peru. Literally, still processing.
Because of all the time lapse photography I took (about 15,000 photos), it has taken me weeks to just get things edited, sorted, and processed into a useable format.
As to the experience, it drained about all of the energy I had. Don’t get me wrong, the trip was amazing. But unlike a regular tourist that would have been on this luxury tour by Cox & Kings, I was working the whole time. So while I got to enjoy some of the best opportunities available in this country, a perfect one country for about a 10-day to 2-week tour by the way, when I was done with my trip, I actually needed some time off. The exact opposite of what ‘regular people’ experience on a vacation like this.
I got to stay in some amazing hotels when I was there, but the fun of a trip is getting out and exploring. And for me, that means getting my cameras out to take some photos, and as of more recently, video.
Earlier I did a post of some of my favorite Instagram photos from the trip. Don’t get me wrong, I really do love how handy my cell phone is and how easy it is to pull it out and snap pictures quickly, but there also is a big difference in the quality when I use my real cameras.
In the midst of doing my video editing (some will be ready and up next week), I took out some time yesterday and today to pull some of my favorite photos from this journey through Southern Peru.
I hope you like them.
