one day in lima city

lima - barranco

This is the starting point of any photo trip in the country, going to the basics.
The Lima centre is the place where the city was founded, the same streets that the Incas and Spaniards walked have changed a few in many decades and remain many old buildings.
Barranco was the new city of the 19th century, the place where wealthy families built their second house to escape from the city and enjoy the beach and farms.
Miraflores grew in the mid-1900s and today is the modern side of Lima city.
Plus, Lima grew up in a big valley where pre-Inca cultures built many sacred buildings, many of them have disappeared but luckily there are some still here and can be visited. 

what kind of photos we may take?

Architecture, city streets, people, landscape, long exposition, and/or local activities.

what lenses are best for this trip?

An 85 mm, and 105 mm for shooting people.
A zoom 24-70 / 24-105 / 35-150 mm is good for multi-use.
On sunny days an ND2 or polarized filter, and an ND16 or ND1000 if we are in a season of sunsets and you want to shoot some long exposure. Tripod recommended.

SUGGESTED ITINERARY

8 am. We move to Lima city centre: Plaza Mayor, San Francisco Sq, Santo Domingo, San Martin Sq., Paseo de los Heroes and many other places.
12 m. Then, we leave Lima and go to a “Huaca” (depending on the day we may choose a different one: Mateo Salado, Huallamarca or Pucllana). Huaca is the generic name of an ancient Inca or pre Inca sacred site.
2 pm. We leave the Huaca and go for lunch (not included in the rate) to the Barranco district
4 pm. Walk around the centre of Barranco until the end of the day. 
(the order of places may change and timing, for example, to shoot sunset or blue hour)
Optionally we may go to the Miraflores seafront.
