In the photographer's words: "We were returning from two days on the Isla del Sol in Lake Titicaca, to the mainland by boat when I saw this man rowing his boat through the water. He looked so happy and content in such a serene setting, I was compelled to snap the picture just before getting off the boat to go back to out bus. It exemplifies the life that the Bolivian highlanders live, simple and content, filled to the brim with tradition."
