Taken in the Summer of 2010 at Sacsayhuaman, near Cusco
Sacsayhuaman offers some phenomenal examples of Incan masonry, which used no mortar and involved perfect joints that weren’t perfectly on the horizontal or vertical (i.e. the joints had to be matched up on planes of various angles.)
I’m breaking out some blasts from the pasts. This was taken during a 2010 trip to the Peruvian Andes. I probably never posted this before (on my previous photoblog) because I had some crud in my camera as you can see above the most prominent cloud. I don’t know whether my standards are lowering or my aesthetic sensibilities are ripening, but I kind of like this one.
