Stolen Moments

EXPLORE #1 (highest position) Travels to Cuba brought us in close touch with the most wonderful people. Intoxicating salsa music and dancing in the streets, great food, entertaintment and water sports. The Bay of Pigs was a boys camp at the time and Hemingway's haunts the Floridita and La Bodeguita were amazing places to people watch and drink Mojito's.

 

Shot with an old F-series camera using black and white film and converted to digital with a CanoScan 8400F. No texture or major processing. Added clarity due to the conversion to digital.

 

Cuba, like many other 'communist / socialist' countries has seen their buildings, streets and highways fall into various degress of disrepair. Money seems to be made available to keep up landmarks and government buildings while the everyday things appear to be on the bottom of most lists. Hungary my original home is very much the same.
