Havana Man II

This is my final version of [link] after loads of practice :)

On my way around Havana by foot and my fellow friend, my camera - I saw this poor fellar' sitting down in the shade of tropic tree's.
I walked over to him - as the "rich" dump tourist and asked him "Es p..possiblé.. ehh.. Uno photografia por favor?" and i saw he was blind by his reaction. He nodded and i shot him and gave him money enough for 2 days meals.
"Gracias senior" i said and continued around Havana.

I hope u enjoy the portrait as much as I did shoot it :)

Har selv været på Cuba og synes det fanger stemningen ret godt. Ved godt det kun forstiller en mand, men de ligner fandme hinanden allesammen, og samtidig er de enormt unikke! ELSKER det sted!!! :D

Ja forpokker! Det er nok den flotteste / medrivende og "moving" tur jeg nogen sinde har været på ! Og hvis cuba forbliver "cuba" Tager jeg klart der til igen! .. Tak for komment champ! :)

Nu hvor Fidél desværre er gået af, kan det godt gå hen og blive et mini Las Vegas (hvis ikke Raúl gør det godt vel og mærke :p).
Men tror desværre det traditionele Cuba som vi kender det, er stille og roligt på vej ud da USA meget gerne vil ha fingrene i det land! :)
