Views of Machu Picchu and the magnificent Andes from the summit of Huayna Picchu.
It is astounding that the Incas could build such massive projects at this altitude. The amount of labor and materials it took; quite mind-boggling!
It is interesting that Machu Picchu was not recorded by the Spanish conquistadores. The modern world didn't have any known records of this place until Hiram Bingham "discovered" it in 1911.
I must have had about 500 followers in 2014 when I went to Peru, and I didn't have or even care much about mobile Internet. I wasn't even serious about shooting. While being able to connect with more people these days is great, I think I sometimes care too much these days about catering to an audience, and I need to remind myself, that's not how and why I got here in the first place.
Last week in Cusco. The gateway to the Inca trails and high up in Peruvian mountains. Vibrant, colourful, full of joyous positive culture. Steeped in history. Barely scratched the surface but it was amazing to witness. #cusco#peru#inca#machupicchu
Life is pretty exciting atm. Just got back for an Aboriginal Peer Mentorship Training camp! Helping young Aboriginal find their bearings at Mount Royal in the fall!
Also, next week, I am jetting off to Peru/Inca Trail/Machu Pecchu with my partner, @sharayahphotography and one of my best buds @trent_redmond_art.

The most expensive train ride in Peru, this machine is named after the American Archaeologist, Hiram Bingham who discovered Machu Picchu. On shoulder season, it ranges from $800 from Cusco. Well why not? "One time, BIG time" #peru#cusco#machupicchu#hirambingham#perurail
