Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted
Day 213 – February 20, 2012
This week’s photo challenge from WordPress has the theme of distorted.
First, the photo…
Over this weekend, as Summer Vacation here in the Southern Hemisphere was winding down, the family and I took a mini-vacation to the town of Iquitos, which is located in the Peruvian section of the Amazon jungle.
On our third day, our guide took us to a village populated by members of the Yagua people.
When we arrived, we were escorted into a structure that was explained to us to be a communal house.
Then, the villagers came in and performed two dances. The first dance, the one pictured above, was called the “Dance of Bliss”.
I obtained the effect for this picture by turning off the flash and keeping the camera as still as possible while the aperture remained open for a few seconds to compensate for the low light.
