Photographer's Note

Being in Huamachuco for some time, we pretty much always had lunch at the same place, El Caribe, a small restaurant run by a family (as most businesses are in Peru, at least in the more rural parts). It is also where my thesis supervisor has always eaten, ever since his first visit to Huamachuco in the 1980s (when it was basically the only place in town). They serve traditional highland Andean dishes, such as aji de gallina, escabeche de pollo, seco de corderro, and yes, I even once had cuy (guinea pig) there. The lady of the establishment has won awards for her cooking, so while the place looks quite run down and uninviting for a Westerner, it is probably the best place to get a lunch if you ever find yourself in Huamachuco.

Being my first time there, and eating there basically every day for over two months, I got to know the family well enough, and saw the kids and dog running around all the time. This is one of the grandchildren of the family. One day I happened to be there with my camera, so naturally the kids all want to get their picture taken! I really should try and forward this picture to them...

I am only recently starting to do the least bit of post-processing on photos. Here, I have cropped it, sharpened it and added the simple frame. Any advice on the crop and the frame would be appreciated. I have put the original in the workshop. I have also put another crop in the workshop, one which was actually rather accidental, but which I thought is also interesting.
