15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Peruvian woman and child

Peruvian Woman with Child was taken in 2015 in Cuzco, Peru during a trip with 26 students from a High School where I teach Spanish. Having some free time in a structured trip I stepped into a fair trade women's cooperative and noticed a Peruvian woman and her child sitting on the floor resting after a day's work. I observed that "The Mother was looking off into the distance, but her child was staring directly up at me. I quickly took out my camera and took one frame.
