Witch Toes, 2009
Another one from the archives. Those are actually my favorite clubbing shoes, circa 1987.

Remember this print? I have several available in the now happening silent auction! Bids start at $3, but bid high to win!

Doors and Windows of Cusco, Part II

That poor cat in the first photo was screaming it’s head off, and it reverberated down the empty alley like some sort of sound torture. We could not calm it down, and I had to cover my ears eventually. This is one of the only cats we ever saw in Cusco. The street is full of dogs, I’m sure this cat was in a panic trying to get back inside it’s home.

Almost finished with my Holy Roman Iron Knight. I thought it would be fun to put him in a Regiment going off to fight Saladin in the 2nd Crusades. Still have to add some filigree to his boots as well as finish up his Rose Window. Photo courtesy of Getty thru the Metro.UK

My husband is amazing!

Doors and Windows of Cusco, Part I

Cusco is a very small, very crowded city. My husband and I rose at the crack of dawn to take photos of the endlessly beautiful doors, balconies and windows before the traffic and the tourists and daily local life got in the way. It was a glorious, quiet hour, only interrupted by church folk and students straggling off to school. We didn’t even have time to wander very far off the main plaza, but the doors were plentiful.

Cathedral of Santo Domingo, Cusco, Peru

I cannot emphasize how amazing this cathedral was. All the religious art inside was created by the local people under the thumb of the Spanish invaders. As a result the art is a unique and beautiful fusion of what the artists thought the Spaniards were talking about, having no inherent Catholic reference point. Local traditions, imagery and concepts work their way into the Catholic icons, paintings and architecture. And it is HUGE and so crazy over the top ornate, Baroque taken to the extreme. The wood carvings alone are worth the trip to Peru.

Much to my continued frustration, you cannot take photos inside the cathedrals. The things I saw in there…wow. The sculptures of Christ are so bloody it’s ridiculous, and the ornamentation of the saints and their shrines are breathtaking.

The cathedral (as with most all the other churches and monestaries) was built over the foundation of the most prestigious Incan temple, Kiswarkancha, as a way for the Spanish to eradicate what they considered pagan blasphemies, and to assimilate the local population.

I had to content myself with shooting the outside of the church, and this little corner hidden in the shadows was my favorite.

I want to mention that I was born in Peru, but had never been in the Andes mountains. My mother had been to Cusco a couple of times before, but she had never visited Machu Picchu. It was a great family trip.

Sacred Valley, Peru

More vacation photos, in and around Urubamba Valley. In the second photo you can see Inca terraces in the background. Some are under archeological protection, but some are still used by local farmers.

Machu Picchu

Here are some super touristy photos from the trip. Machu Picchu was amazing, you really just have to experience it for yourself. Photos cannot convey the scope of it, or the altitude. And llamas of course! Being synonymous with the Andean culture, the government actually trucks them in to Machu Picchu for the tourists. They are very camera savvy.
