Intercontinental Latin Sound

Four of the musicians from the band Marisma Mundial take a break in the shade in Copacabana, Bolivia. Canon 5D Mark II camera and Canon 24-105mm f4L IS USM lens. Exposure Details: 1/320 seconds @ f4 ISO 200.

I nabbed this photograph of Bolivian musicians taking a break from an uphill march and the relentless sunshine pummeling our heads during a fiesta in Copacabana, Bolivia. Like most people at the fiesta -performers and spectators alike- taking a break was essential to recharge after all the beers, marching, dancing, singing, and in my case: running, ducking, weaving, crouching and clicking (and some of those other verbs too of course). As soon as I noticed these guys I had to grab a shot because the light was reflecting beautifully right into where they were sitting and the colours of their suits matched the street well too (blue shirts with otherwise warm tones). The square crop works well, makes this look like a record cover for the band Marisma Mundial, who according to their drum print have an intercontinental latin sound.

As always, more on the way.
