Bogotá, Colombia – Looking down one of the narrow streets of the historical La Candelaria district of Bogotá, the Andean capital city of the South American country of Colombia. It is near this area that the Spanish Conquistador, Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada founded the city in 1538. Many of the walls in this area are painted with street art, legends of the pre Colombian era, or just in the vibrant colours of Latin America. Down the street, some road reconstruction is underway. The sky is overcast: it will probably rain shortly. Photo shot on a cloudy morning; horizontal format. Copy space.
