Photographer's Note

Taken on Amantani Island on Lake Titicaca. The island is quite small and is populated by a number of indian families. They engage in a simple lifestyle, growing their own foods, fishing etc. The women wear brightly coloured skirts of green, red and blue, intricately embroided waistbands, shirts and head dresses, their long hair held in plaits. The island has no electricity or running water but it does have.... a concrete soccar field. When there we were challenged to a game of soccar 'Gringos' versus the locals. At an altitude of approx 4000m it was a tough game!!! The ladies pictured were amused by our lack of high-altitude fitness while we slowly collapsed to the ground.

Cropped, slight saturation, sharpened, little else. I've left them at a distance to show their clothing and the football 'stands'.I always welcome advice.

)Behind is Lake Titiaca, somewhere beyond that is Bolivia).
