Photographer's Note

What I like the most of this picture is the contratsing thnigs on it.
The picture was taken on an island in the middle of Titicaca lake, where people live with what they are able to cultivate(only few things such as: potatoes, quinua, some eggs, and some other basic vegetables; only in special festivities they eat llama meat), and with some other stuff turists bring. But although their austere life, they still take care of turism and have little markets weher you can buy coke, kit kat, and stuff you will never imagine to have in the middle of titicaca.
The owner of the place, an old women in appearence (she was only 40), still working on what she knows the best, kniting.

I belive the picture is good also for the light, it's good the light coming from the window. I used to much zoom, and as my camera is not to good for that, the picture lost definition. I hear comments!! I need them!!
