a few shots from a sunrise in quito, ecuador:
sunrise over la plaza de san francisco as viewed from the luxurious mansion-turned-hotel casa gangotena. Destroyed by fire in 1914, the mansion was rebuilt in 1926 by the prominent Gangotena family. The mansion was sold and after a $10 million renovation, reopened in october 2011 as a hotel.
a look to the andean hills/mountains dotted with colorful, boxy buildings
some lens flare as the sun rises over la iglesia de la compañia (the jesuit church: church of the society of jesus)
the fake-tree cell phone tower made me chuckle.
