    #1C for color

    Unposed as is normally usual with me. Just a lovely moment in Havana on the Malecon.

    This young ballerina was having a friend take her photograph with a flash. However the flash kept misfiring. As the cars swept around the corner from behind me, I noticed the headlamps were giving the girl a beautiful light and color. So I waited for the traffic lights to change and on the next seep I took this image.  She is so graceful looking. Click attachment for larger image.L1040452-2000

    #2 “Quality Control”

    I found this guy on Calle Ocho at a cigar factory/store in Miami, FL. Suddenly he grabbed one of his recently made cigars, lit it up and I captured this image. One can see his stack of completed cigars on the table in front if him. Taken with  a Pentax 645Z with an old 35mm manual focus lens.

    #2C This image taken with an M10 on 5th Avenue in NYC. I just waited here for this exact type of pedestrian to walk into my frame. It took 30 minutes of patience for her to come by. One shot.

    Congratulations on the image of the lovely young ballerina.

    I hope she has a copy as well, so she can show her grandchildren

    who she was when young.

     

    I chuckled when I saw the picture of the black-and-white stylists

    Kudos for your prescience.

    Regards,

    Sure hope this lovely Florence couple is unharmed while living in the worst hard hit country in Europe.  “Talking with Hands”

    Wonder if this guy bought his cigar box for his guitar from the guy above who was making cigars. Canon 5D3/70-200/studio lighting

    I found this lovely lady looking out her front door while walking down a back street of Havana where tourists generally do not go. She was commenting on this vert fact and asked where I was from. It seems most Cubans like the fact that one lives in Florida where so many have relatives who “escaped” to the US.L1040889-2-1600-copy

    This is what walking and walking some more can get you, but it is somedays long in coming into your view.  Unposed. Paris Bar stare.

    One morning in Havana I was walking around this square and came upon this man reading the morning paper with the nice diagonal shadows coming from the columns behind him. He was practicing social distancing from the nearby statues.

    Unposed image from last January. I bet the vaporettos of Venice are these days. This lady sat right in front of me and I waited for her to look out of the window and get some nice light on one side of her face.

    U saw this image thru the window of the barber shop. I asked the owner if I could shot an image and he agreed. It’s not Havana, but Little Havana in Miami, FL. I like the third man and the depth the mirrors gave the image. Pentax 645Z with old 35mm lens.

    Thanks Kevin. I’ve got plenty more dusted off for my daily updates. I trust my explanations of why and how some images were captured provides some insight and interest.
