Photographer's Note

i just liked her hat... and the confidence in her expression. not much else to say here :) another addition to my 2008, Jan 1st theme. by the way, the number and thickness of necklaces on an indigenous ecuadorian lady's neck supposedly represents her social and economic standing in her community.

the capture was made in front of the Basilica de la Virgen de Agua Santa in Banos, Ecuador on January 1st of 2008. as i mentioned in an earlier post from this series, people from all over gather at the Basilica on this day.

oh, yes. THAT... the shot was made from afar using the full impersonal power of my simple 300 mm... x 1.5 digital sensor multiplier = around 450 mm... i know... Polonaise will give me hard time for that :)
