Life along the Amazon

Floating along the Amazon River in north-eastern Peru. Many villages line the banks of the Amazon so you will always see loads of river traffic - often in tiny handcarved wooden canoes (dugout) such as this. These dugout canoes are usually made of marupa wood.Upload from October 04, 2011 

Steps carved into the dirt leading down to the river’s edge - having an early morning scrub! Upload from September 18, 2011
Like most kids, the village kids LOVED to show off - doing cartwheels and jumping into the river!Upload from October 04, 2011
A group of us spent some time walking through a  village located on one of the many tributaries located off the Amazon River. Upload from October 04, 2011

About

Welcome to my travel photo blog. Photography has been a part of my life for a long time – back in the day the Pentax Super Program was always near at hand. But it wasn’t until I started travelling around the world that photography became a vehicle for me to show others about the absolutely amazing and complex world we live in. My hope is to share with you glimpses of what I’ve seen. Enjoy!
