La Paz 009
La Paz, Bolivia, 22-Apr-2013

Indulge me in a quick poll, please.

What do you see here: A fiercely traditional Aymara woman embracing one aspect of convenience that modernity brings? Or, yet another example of modern technology intruding upon traditional cultures?

Culture is this week’s WordPress Photo Challenge theme, a term that guest blogger and photographer Aaron Joel Santos admits is a ‘loaded’ one, that “can embody everything and nothing”. I hope this image falls somewhere in between.
