WPC: Juxtaposition

When I saw Michelle’s new theme ‘Juxtaposition’, I immediately remembered these few pics from my archives. We quite often see most unexpected pairings, and whilst travelling in Peru, I came upon this rather unlikely combination, near to the Temple of Wiracocha in Raqchi.

Just below Machu Picchu is a market, with a railway line running right through the middle of it.

On our Costa Rican tour, we stopped for lunch at a roadside restaurant, and I found this pair of sculptures really odd, and wondered whose idea it was to place them there. They seemed to bear no relation to one another at all.

Lastly, here are two very different modes of transport. In Sarchi, the most famous crafts centre in Costa Rica, I noticed this modern day bicycle leaning up against the ancient ox cart on display there.

  8. Thanks for sharing your collection of images ….different from most publicity shots we see from these countries. I can only imagine the horror Australian Workplace Health and Safety bureaucrats would express at the idea of the train motoring through the market with no protective fence ten feet high and a safety buffer zone of twenty yards. 😉
