Barranco is the bohemian district in Lima par excellence. One can go all over the place and visit art galleries, meet friends at cafés (being Bisetti my favorite) and obviously have some drinks at a bunch of bars (Sargento Pimienta, Ayahuasca, Tizón, La Noche, Mochileros, Help, Santos, Piselli, and so on and so forth): Barranco is literally the synonym of night life in Lima.
Barranco is also amazing because of its panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean and part of the city. The two photographs of Lima that I showed on my last post, for instance, were taken there. Today, I wanted to share two other pictures of Lima, its coast and its sky, taken from Barranco. The first one is quite dramatic: look how the roughen sea and the grey sky mingle, making the barrier dividing them in the horizon almost disappear.
Of course, the second photograph is the flip side of the same coin. Look at those pink/orange-ish cirrus clouds overflying the calm ocean and my home town at the beginning of summer!
Well, you should definitely do the following experiment! Look for pictures of your favorite place in your home town taken during the summer and other pictures of the same place taken during the winter. Then, compare them. You’ll be absolutely shocked by how different the same place looks! In case you can’t find any pictures meeting your expectations, you could take some pictures these days and wait for 5-6 months to take new photos and compare. It should be an amazing experiment and a blast!…
