Default Quito - Ecuador

I am updating my gallery with pictures from my last trip to Ecuador and I found some nice shots that I want to share with you guy's.

All of it with the Olympus E5


1 Santo Domingo Convent

Built in the early XVI Century is one of the most beautiful buildings of the Colonial part of the city.





2 Santo Domingo Square





3 The Government Palace





4 Simon Bolivar Theater.






5 Simon Bolivar Theater and Ernesto Alban (Evaristo Corral y Chancleta).

Evaristo was one of the most popular artist in the 60's and 70's, in memory of this person the Major of Quito decided to post his statue in front of this theater.





6 Evaristo






At the time of my visit the city was celebrating one more year of the Spanish Independence and I had the opportunity to capture with my camera at the President Rafael Correa during his speech.

I used the Olympus E5 + 50-200mm + TC 1.4

7 President Speech




8 La Compania De Jesus

Do you remember my old post about this church? the following is the link if you want to check the interiors of this beautiful building:

La Compania de Jesus






9 My good friend...

Every time I travel to Ecuador I pay visit to my great friend Diego , he works for the Government in the colonial part of the city and he allow me to use the roof of his office building to capture some interesting images of the city from a different angle, I shoot this portrait of him.






10 The Basilica and The Rooster of the Church






Thank you for looking at my pictures and have a great week everyone.

Marcelo

I thoroughly enjoyed these too, Marcelo. We don't get to see many photos from South America up here, other than Machu Picchu.

Actually when I was in school we were never even taught much about South America other than the Incas and Simon Bolivar. It's almost like the continents of South America and Africa didn't exist except as a barrier to sailing from Europe to Asia or North America to Asia. Weird.

Thank you Harj, I am processing new pictures and I will post it here for sure.

I'll be traveling to London next February and I'm thinking to buy a small system because the actual Nikon set up I have is so heavy..!!!!

Maybe the reason we don't heard too much about South America here is because we don't promote or we don't sell the beauty of our countries well, some people think that Ecuador is a desertic country just because the fact the Ecuadorian Line cross it and the reality is different, it is a very small territory but with so many diversity of weather, landscape and fauna.
