2800 meters high

Quito is exhaustive for street photography since it is mostly made of hills. The altittude of 2800 meters does not help either, I felt myself short of air quite a few times. And finally, your camera must be kept firmly in your hands since pickpocket seems a local favorite. This apart, Quito is wonderful with stunning cityscapes and a great mix of modern and colonial buildings. Has for its inhabitants, better leave the pictures do the talking.

All pictures taken with Leica M8 and 35mm Lux Asph
