After being surrounded by all that vast open space during my Salar de Uyuni tour, I found it hard to adjust to the mass of humanity visible from my 12th floor room window. I spent the day walking around La Paz but decided pretty quickly that I’d like to be somewhere else for the approaching new year. I’d usually consider myself a city person and quite get into finding out about what to see and do. All I can say is that deserts mess with your mind.

I shot this image through the half-open window because I liked how the lines of the window frame run parallel with the large tower blocks and give an added depth to the image. The green tone of the glass accentuates this separation between inside and out. To not blow out my highlights , I underexposed by 1.3 stops and pushed out of the shadows in post. The beauty of shooting Raw!
