Photographer's Note

This arch is pictured all over the place in Peru -- it's one of the main attractions on Lake Titicaca, besides the lake itself. As much as I tried to resist, once I was there and saw the arch, I had to try and get a picture of it; which is easier said than done when there are a handful of tourists following your every move. It's really like the archway leading up to the sky because when you're on the lake you really feel as if you could just reach your hand up and touch the sky, steal a bit for a memento, and with a few more steps you would be a part of it yourself.
