OLD HABANA

OLD HABANA

The sun rises in sleepy old Habana and its eyes open slowly upon the grandiose visions of what once was and what is trying to hang on. Havana, Cuba. SEP12 (Canon 550D, Canon Zoom Lens EF 70-300mm)

CUBA

CUBA

Sitting in the taxi driving through a dream…I leaned out and got this shot. I absolutely loved the juxtaposition of the blue wall and the red car, as well as the yellow traffic strip and the black and gray road…just all came together to appear almost like a painting. It’s an image that will remain with me. Havana, Cuba SEP12 (Picture taken with Canon 550D, Canon EFS 18-135mm lens.)

TRAVEL LIGHT

Travel Light

Just me and my Vans Fortnight Backpack off for a Cuban adventure and some time off the grid. I’ve always, always wanted to go to Cuba. It has such a mystique in America. Maybe people think Bay of Pigs, Castro, Che, Cigars, Communism, Oppression, Cubans escaping Cuba on boats to try to make it to the U.S. (the land of the free…), Elian Gonzalez and Janet Reno, a leadership that despises America and on and on and on. Americans weren’t allowed in for many years, and still can’t enter from the United States, but now it’s lightened up a bit so that we can enter from outside the country in places like Bogota and Mexico. Whenever I hear from someone who’s been, they only say great things about it. Here I go to see for myself. (Picture taken with Instagram, Lo-Fi aspect.)
