46 Colorful Pictures That Capture Everyday Life of the Americas in 1974

These colorful pictures were taken by Chris Protopapas that documented everyday life of Chile, Peru, and Panama Canal in 1974.

“My first photography expedition, working on a Greek freighter, summer 1974. All taken with a 1957 Nikon S3 and a variety of color slide films.

My home for the summer of 1974. My father worked for a Greek shipping company, and got me a "job" onboard. I really was just along for the ride, and my uncle was the captain, so I couldn't really get into trouble. My first photography expedition, with my 1957 Nikon S3 I had just bought a few months before.”
