About the Image(s)

This image was taken while being on a Deep Amazon cruise, from Peru, in the spring of 2006. This was on the largest ship in the fleet, which looked like it was built in the 20th century, but it was build around 1995. The total amount of passengers on our boat was 37 people. The boat landed into the bank of this small Trible village. This young lady was standing in front one of the houses, built on stilts. I cropped the original picture down, just to feature this girl holding the bird. I also attached a image of the boat we were on . Using small, outboard motor boat's, we wend down some of the small tributaries along the river.
This was taken using a Canon Rebel T1i camera.

This is an interesting photo. She does not look indigenous. Do you know what is the story with the bird? Have you considered blurring and darkening the back round?   Posted: 10/02/2021 16:21:05

I don't know the story about the bird as she had it all the time we were in the village. she is indigenous, as the rest of the people in this mid size village. This village had no stores, all food etc. were brought in by boat. I didn't blur out the background as I liked all of the wrinkles on the canvas. Our boat came up to the shore and we got out to go into the village. They have a school for the younger children, the older kids go to a different place on the Amazon for further education. We did stop at a smaller village and had to go ashore in a smaller outboard motor boat. This small village had a Sharman for medical needs. He makes up potions from items he gets from the forest .   Posted: 10/03/2021 15:47:27

Yes, it is an interesting story and an interesting subject. I also like the crop as it directs my attention to the girl.   Posted: 10/03/2021 18:19:05
