The Church of San Pedro de Atacama
Downtown San Pedro… The Church in Black & White: Visiting this tourist town in the north of Chile, we were nestled in the city of San Pedro de Atacama. This church has been around for many years and I was told by a previous tourist to make sure I visited this place in the center of town. But… I was told that the church was white. Long story short - it was white, then painted a coral color. I thought it was the wrong church until I asked about it’s original color. The coral was OK, but I wanted to capture what the church might have looked light as white. So I switched to Black and white.
