From A New Perspective

I want to share with you some of the beauty I saw in Peru (I lived there from January to May 2010).  When visiting various ruins I would fall in love the flora and fauna that beautified each place (not that these ruins needed anything else).   Here are some ruins from a different perspective.  These photos are from Pisac, Qorikancha, and Machu Pichu all near or in the city of Cusco, Peru.



The moment one gives close attention to any thing, even a blade of grass it becomes a mysterious, awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself.  ~Henry Miller
