Travel : Cusco, Peru with The Giving Lens (photos)

Two months ago, I was preparing for my first trip to Peru.  Now I sit here, back at my computer in San Francisco, wondering how did that time fly by so quickly?

During this short time I also managed to fit in a 10 day photo tour of Iceland - but that is another story :)

This post is to share a few of the images that I took during my Peru trip.  The trip that I went on was an "exploratory" trip for a full blown workshop that will be conducted by The Giving Lens organization in the spring or summer of 2013.  If you are not familiar with The Giving Lens, head over to their site and have a read.  The organization is founded by Colby Brown and is focused on helping others in the world through photography and travel.

I will write more about the philanthropic activities of out trip later - for now ... here are some pictures.  Also, if you wish to see posts from myself and others related to this trip, search G+ for the tag #TGLperu (do this Search on Google+) :

  1. Realmente os momentos que você eterniza com tuas lentes são mágicos e perfeito.

  2. Stunning photos! Cusco is certainly one of the most interesting places to visit in Peru. A must-visit for those who love ruins and museums.
