Photographer's Note

I was staying at a house in La Paz that was located in one of the hillsides of the city. In this place the view of the city center and the both mountain peaks of La Paz was spectacular. I took this picture at 1841 hours. The mountain top covered in snow here is the Illampu (6331m above sea level, in accordance to a bolivian-made map of Bolivia —though I may be wrong with the name of the mountain).
In La Paz the people that live higher in the city are the poorer ones, and in the bottom are the richer, as opposed to most cities. That's because it's very high, and lower (in-between the mountanis) the weather is milder than on the tops. Therefore the buildings in this photo are at the bottom.

Shot with Kodak-something ISO 100 slide film

Increased saturation overall some 4 points, unsharp masking to the picure but the sky (gaussian blur), modified levels a bit.
