This shot was taken on Taquile Island during my two-day trip on the Titicaca Lake. This boy was resting next to one of the many arches, watching the people passing by. He looked like a little guardian of the "door"... You can see that he's wearing the typical clothes of the island.
I know that actually there's no composition at all in this photo. There is not enough space below his feet, and at the right side there isn't much space either. Anyway, I decided to post it because I like this shot. I hope you'll like it too...
The arch you see on this picture isn't the same as the arch on the other photo I posted (a few days ago). There are many on Taquile Island.

A nice shot with excellent colors. Well framed. The blue of the lake contrasts quite nicely with the bright red hat. I visited this exact spot last year, and your picture brings back some good memories.

Beautiful view of the arch, Titicaca and the land far away. Nice this little guardian. He should make some knitting, like most men on Taquile.

I was here only a few weeks ago in nearly the exact position. Taquile is beautiful isnt it. Did you get charged a soles by the boy to be included in your picture? They were very cheeky, there were around three boys at the time.
