Weekly Photo Challenge: Sun
Day 158 – December 27, 2011
Sun is the theme for this week’s Photo Challenge from WordPress.
This post is an experiment in compare-and-contrast with photography.
The shot below was taken at the Incan ruins of Saqsaywaman, which is located right outside of Cusco. The family and I, along with our visiting sister-in-law were in the area to visit Machu Picchu. More details on that day of our trip can be read here.
While touring the ruins, I came to a stone archway and as I looked up, I saw that there was a gap in the two blocks that formed the lintel. I positioned myself in just such a way so that I could capture the sun coming through that gap and here was the result.
When I stepped a wee bit to the left or moved the camera a smidge (a precise unit of measurement equal to 4 whits) to the right, this is what I saw.
Funny how a change in perspective can really change everything.
