Havana Vieja photos

I mostly only take photos in Havana just before or immediately after dawn. Once the sun is up the shadows are too strong and its difficult to see the beauty of the architecture. Besides, its cool and quite then. There are lots more tourists in and cafes in the old city since our last visit. Mostly, I suspect because WIFI is now available. Building are being restored at a fast pace, and new restaurants are opening daily.

Portraits

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.
