Peru Cusco A group of girls in traditional Cusco white hats visiting the massive
Inca construction of Sacsayhuaman on a hill above the city. Some of these stones
are said to weigh up to 200 tons and fit together perfectly without mortar. In
1961 the girls were among the few visitors to this now well trodden site.
Leica lll F with a collapsible Leitz f 5cm 1.3.5 lens. Film Panatomic X at F5.6
- 1/100 second. The camera was on loan and my film was cut from bulk rolls and
loaded in a re-loadable Leica cassette. It was a convenient low cost way of carrying
film but not ideal. The film had to be loaded in the dark and static electricity
always attracted dust which shows on the negative. Hand-processed in Lima using
May and Baker Promicrol at normal dilution.
