Walking in San Pedro along the main street (Caracoles: Snails), where cars and bikes and forbidden you find interesting scenes at the roads crossing it, like this one of people quietly seating, talking and waiting
At the back in contrasts with the rustic place, a very modern 4 by 4, used for excursions
A characteristic of the village are the dogs, present everywhere

There is not much happening in this picture and maybe that is why I like it. I enjoy street shots that tell me something of how people live, what the environment looks like. This makes me wonder what they are all waiting for, and I notice that the dogs look surprisingly nice and well fed, not like the skinny and dirty dogs running around in the streets of Asian cities.

Muy interesante foto, prima Maria!
Los perros miren bien alimentados.
La postura de la persona de la izquierda es intrigante.
Pero lo mejor es la textura de la pared, con las sombras de los árboles sobre ella!

What a great scene from the streets, there are so many possibilities for the imagination to ponder. :) This every day happening of people simply going about their business is always fascinating to see from someone elses perspective...nothing staged or planned, all organic and natural. You've captured that sentiment here, and in a manner that is not obtrusive, which keeps the natural flow of things in tact. With your mention of there being many dogs, this picture would suggest a ratio of 1 per person...yes, that is a lot! :) Smart observation, this is a fun look at a spontaneous moment. Have a great day ahead.

An image full of possible tales each and every one! Group of street people gathered together probably awaiting for public transport in their typical fashion getting on with their everyday existence and issues even the dogs and the breads have joined in! There's lots to see I guess, and body language is quite entertaining too and the picture also shows the relaxed atmosphere. It takes the eye from extreme left to the right of frame to the 4 wheeler and then the backdrop characterful rustic wall to better illustrate the location and it kind of sums the place up for me. This is a great insight to another street life and culture skilfully captured. Congrats TFS

Hola Maria, I remember from Chile the dogs everywhere, just like these on your photo. they were always were quiet, doing no harm. Nice scene. What are they waiting for? Nice shot.

Why is everyone so serious here, Maria?
This is different from other shots, nothing seems to be happening, there is no communication, an uneasy feeling is there, still the shot attracts.
Don't know why.
This is really strange.
May be this strange feeling hooks me to this shot.

A very clear, sharp, well lit shot with an interesting subject. I like this group of people, which raises questions and suggests a story. How are they connected? Whose are the dogs? It's intriguing the way they are all arranged, looking bored, uneasy, anxious perhaps - people and dogs alike. Anyway, I like it, especially the higher resolution version.

Une très bonne ambiance lumineuse sur cette scène intéressante où les personnages ne se soucient pas de ta présence en gardant leur naturel

Hi Maria,another original pic in your serie showing us the peruvian people,very interestins and nice,after the siberian,the south americans.A very rich composition and a perfect diagonal light to create a nice 3D effect,i like it! Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

a very intriguing scene, I think that apart from the daily life information and the setting, you've also captured a scene from a little family drama. There's tension among the people and the dogs contrast it with their relaxed and neutral attitude. Three people and three dogs, two sitting and one standing from each set. You've used perspective excellently as usual, giving enough space to the protagonists to express themselves and act their scene. Depth and clarity are stunning, the light has been managed effectively in order to keep everything natural and real. Congratulations and thank you!
I'm glad you liked my photo and considered it birthday present:)
All the best, have a lovely day,
