Peru Cusco. The foundations of Muyuq Marka at the top level of Sacsayhuaman,
the huge Inca construction overlooking Cusco. Muyuq Marka included 3 arge towers
and a grand building or temple. The Spanish conquerors used many of the bricks
for building in Cusco city. The circular construction is 23 metres across and
forms the basis of the central tower. In 1961 the site was newly excavated.
Leica lll F with a collapsible Leitz f 5 cm 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.
