One of those moments


We all had one of those moments when you wished you had a camera! I met this old Peruvian man a few kilometres outside Aguas Calientes. I can not speak Spanish. The old man could not speak English. However, we somehow communicated and laughed together for about twenty minutes. It was a truly extraordinary moment. I wish I had it on video. The man was delighted when this photo was taken. He showed so much excitement when he saw himself on the screen of my camera! It was one of those moments, reminding me to appreciate all the finer things in life we take for granted.

  1. Once I was walking in Japan (forgot which town), Yokohama maybe?, and saw a samurai wrestler with his yukata (casual day time kimono) riding his little bike. And to this day, I wished I had a camera….

    Love the photo. It shows that you two had a connection, so even without video, it works.
