I had trouble this week to pick from my personal photo gallery my “masterpiece”.
The first thing that came to my mind was Macchu Picchu.
I took this photo in March, 2003, in a trip to Peru with a friend. I used a Canon Prima zoom shot, the first camera I bought with my own money. It was a very simple point and shoot film camera, but it took great photos. The ruins of Inca civilization and its architecture really impressed me. This photo was scanned and its quality it’s not so good but it still can show Macchu Picchu’s majesty.
The second one is Löwendenkmal, The Lion Monument in Luzern, Switzerland. I took this photo in october, 2007, in a trip with my husband to Europe. This time the equipment was a Canon A 70, my first point and shoot digital camera. This place was really a surprise to us. We didn’t even know about this place before. In that day we were strolling around the city searching for the touristic attractions we found in our city map and the map headed us to this interesting place .
The perfection of a wounded Lion carved in the stone and its suffering expression really impressed me. This masterpiece created to honor the Swiss Guard ” who were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution, when revolutionaries stormed the Tuileries Palace in Paris, France“.
