The Young Untouchables

Two musicians from Los Intocables (The Untouchables) perform during the San Pedro Fiesta in La Paz province, Bolivia. Photographs taken on a Canon 5D Mark II camera and Sigma 50mm f1.4 EX DG HSM lens. Exposure Details: Left – 1/400 second @ f2.8 ISO 200. Right: 1/400 second @ f2.8 ISO 250.

Here’s another diptych of the stars of any Bolivian Fiesta, the musicians. These two young guys are in a group called Los Intocables (meaning the untouchables, but with the double pun to the effect of ‘the unplayables’ in a musical sense because the verb to touch also means ‘to play’ in a musical context in Spanish). I love that there were so many young players in all the big bands that marched around all day, their suits were awesome too. These shots were taken as the San Pedro fiesta I attended was starting to wrap up.

Enough said here, more to roll out soon.
