Cuba people portraits. Havana is a sophisticated city, like any city in Europe or the States, where most people don’t like having a big camera aimed at them like a gun.  I travel with a tiny pocket camera that I keep in the palm of my hand. I usually will only take a photo of someone that I have some kind of interaction with.

A family visit and beach trip to the south coast

Trinidad Cuba beaches on the south side of Cuba aren’t as turquoise or clear, much the same way the east and west side of Florida are different. But wet, warm and beautiful none-the-less.
