Sleeping ships

sleeping ships

Time to dream, darling. Blue dreams for us for the times to be together. I want so badly to be in your dreams as you are in mine… and meet us there in a second life.


Hora de soñar, a.n.c.z. Sueños azules para los dos por los tiempos en que seremos uno. Deseo tanto tanto estar en tus sueños como tú estás en los míos… y vernos en ese otro mundo.

Ilo city… yesterday a customer called from there so tomorrow I’m travelling, it’s for work so probably I’m not going to have time to take some pictures, and we’re in winter so probably the sky is going to have that apathetic gray. in any case I’m going to schedule a pair of posts ahead ;-)

I liked this landscape from the shores of Pacific Ocean in Ilo because the sun seemed so strong that almost it seemed capable to move with its light the ship… it was in the last days of the summer in March…

Ilo Harbour

I worked a pair of summers in Ilo city. I am originally from the highlands (12 000 feet above the sea level) but I’ve the attraction of the Sea. And my ancestors have felt it too for thousands of years. The sunsets from the harbour are fantastic, so when I had the chance to pass near Ilo I took a taxi to there… But I wasn’t familiar with the climate, those sunsets are just in summer, the rest of the year the sky has an overcast condition: ouch!

Anyway, there is beauty in everything so I took, stubbornly, photographs in the harbour.

The next photograph was made with a Haida ND1000 filter. It helps to take long exposures, if your camera says that the time of exposition is 1/1000 of second then with the filter you multiply by 1000 so your exposure last 1 second. In this case the exposition was half a minute. But that is just miscellaneous; I wanted to create a quieter mood…

I was very late to my sunset, late for several months indeed, lol. A few photographs more and to take a bus to travel again. I’ve nice memories from Ilo.

Overcast sea (at sunset)

One day I went to Tacna city so I thought in travel to Ilo City, it’s located in a harbour of the Pacific Ocean. Probably it was one of the places where ships from the Inca Empire went to travel to the Antarctic. The sunsets here are quite amazing but only in Summer, the rest of the year it’s with fog and clouds, that day I hadn’t luck but that happens, so instead to rant I took some photographs of the landscape.

In the end the hidden sunset tinted the day with a soft red. Time to travel again.

Once upon a time a lake

This is a view from Puno’s bay. Those ships were built in England, taken in pieces using donkeys and assembled in the highest (navigable) lake in the world: the Titicaca. Funny (or sadly?), because we have thousand of years building ships, we navigated to Oceania and Antarctica.

They were two ships, Ollanta and Manco Capac, (Capac is a misspelled form of Qhapaq).

I had curiosity to see the port at night, but there was empty; in a certain way is like go to a museum to see objects from the past: there is no life.

BTW in the sky is, if I’m not wrong dear reader, the Jach’a Qhana (what you probably name Southern Cross), four brilliant stars in the middle top.
