Cuba

November 13, 2013 9:33 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

     My first day as I wander the streets I struggle with getting my first shot.  The streets are narrow, people are closed and the heat will take you down.  It’s very apparent tourists have hit this hood hard, so I put my camera on my back and walk.  Not sure where the heck I am going, but I do know that I  am  not going to stick my camera in someone’s face.   Actually, I don’t really stick my camera in peoples face anyway, I always start with a nod, one with an attitude of course. The kind where you kick your chin up, no smile, just a serious look I give.  Then when we make eye contact I smile.   I like to build a relationship, a dance if you will.   It’s all in the eyes because as you might guess I don’t speak the language.

Cuba includes Yank Tanks, laundry from the window line and a mosaic of buildings.   I do believe the spaghetti of wires are holding the crumbling buildings together.

 

Yank Tanks – The classics of 1950’s  – Fords, Buicks and Pontiacs a collectors dream.  The present estimation is there are 60,000 of them still driving on the roads today.  Some beautifully restored and others falling apart.
