Here are some photos from Peru taken on my Holga film camera. I've only just started shooting on film for a bit of fun so still getting to grips with it.
Main square in Cusco during the Lord of the Tremors parade the week before Easter. They go all out for religion out there, quite a culture shock but interesting to see.
My friend and some immaculate Inca stonework on top of Pisac ruins, in the Sacred Valley.
Huaca Pucllana, ruins in the middle of Lima from a pre-Incan civilization.
A curious little alpaca!
View over Cusco.
Pretty yellow flowers that were all over the Sacred Valley.
And of course, the classic shot of the city in the clouds! I took hundreds on my digital SLR but these have a lot of character, I think. I still need to go through my photos from the rainforest, and then I'll post some. Otherwise, I'm just settling back into normal life. Work is going ok for once, and apart from the fact it's REALLY UNSEASONABLY COLD for may, I'm enjoying springtime and the long days. Nothing much else happening right now, apart from having some swelling in my right index finger again. Maybe I can chop it off? Yes? Or maybe I should go back to see my doctor but for some reason I'm reluctant to. Otherwise I feel fine and full of beans. Hope spring is creeping in wherever you are and warming everyone's bones!


  1. What gorgeous, unique photos, Squirrel! I'm so glad you had such a good time in Peru (!!!) and that you're feeling so well right now. Nothing like a holiday far away from the norm to give you a fresh outlook.

    Welcome back. Stay well! :o)

  2. Looks like a fabulous holiday! What an amazing place! So happy you had a chance to get away, and I can't wait to see more pics!

  3. How cool, glad you felt up to going. Love the city in the clouds and the alpaca photo!
