Photographer's Note

two little kichwa sisters we met on our way from cotopaxi to quilotoa. their little brother is somewhere close too. all three of them can be seen in a group shot by avene here; whereas the little one with a beautiful expression up-close is shown in another portrait by avene here.

in this pic, i caught the sisters before they started posing. i liked their "on guard" expression, endearing and at the same time clearly showing wariness. these little ones probably have been herding sheep since they were 4 or so (judging by other shepherds we met). and you can see from their eyes, they mean business regardless what the weather is or will be like in a few hours.

life shows its rougher side early in ecuadorian highlands.
