Photographer's Note

Traffic light or semaforo in spanish, could be a good occasion for many to make a living, while the light is red in these 1 or 2 minutes they have to capture the attention of drivers and passangers, to make a show of any kind ,the big difference between developed and developing countries ,as I could see ,is that in the last ones beggars have to show some kind of ability in order to get their deserved coins, there people can not be impressed by poverty and necessity like in Europe or USA because they are so used to that.
Ana and Juanita are 2 children, maybe 7 or 8 years old, Ana has only one arm available for her acrobatic movements, Juanita is so good in her free style excercises and most of all they are so happy doing this in the middle of central Lima heavy traffic.
I spent about half an hour photographing them, they were so happy with me, it has been a great experience and finally I invited them to a well deserved "merienda" lunch.
