Staying with last week’s theme of “older” faces, these worked better in black and white.
And moving on to the middle-aged crowd, two more.
A line of taxis parading up Calle Neptuno on their Central Havana circuit.
The front of the car with its driver is featured in the post on green Cuban cars.
Love this photo….
A different photo of the same car was included in the Green car post.
This is the same photo which headlines the Car Details post from a week ago.
Eventually we made it around to the other side of the top of Athabaska Falls and to the concrete viewing platforms – where the noise was deafening. (Previous posts on the falls can be found here and here.)
There were rainbows created by the constant spray. These shots aren’t great, but I had to try.
Stray trees wash up on the rocks, with a background of Rocky Mountains, conifers and blue sky.
The last post on the falls will be next Monday.
Since we looked at two-toned cars in my post last Thursday – here are a few more. I wonder if this colour trend will make a comeback in my lifetime.
Most of the cars below are taxis on their regular circuit up Calle Neptuno. Taken from a balcony.
Cuban is nothing if not colourful, but sometimes the variety and intensity of the colour is overwhelming. Like not being able to see the forest for the trees.
The photo below was the last one I took after a long tiring morning and mid afternoon of shooting and it was one of my favourites from the day.
We did stop to eat when in Manhattan!
In fact we’ve been to Wild Edibles twice – once in 2015 and once in 2014. We ate at their old location on 3rd Avenue near East 35th Street which, according to Yelp, is now closed. They also have a seafood market and a wholesaler and, according to the web site, a new restaurant location, but with a rather different menu.
Coming, as we do, from Atlantic Canada, with fish and shellfish fresh and readily available, we don’t often go to fish restaurants when we travel. They just don’t stack up.
I had sardines for an appetizer – something I had not eaten for years.
We split a larger fish for our main course but I’m ashamed to say I don’t remember what it was. Sea bass?
I took very few pictures with my iPhone when in Cuba because I had two other cameras with me and was indeed there for a Havana Photo Workshop. One morning I used the iPhone from the balcony to take some early morning shots.
Rather than stop at a Taxi stand, like the bicycle rickshaws are doing in last week’s iPhriday post, the taxis cruise in a set loop until hailed, when they pull over and pick up a fare, or drop one off.
Published for iPhriday.
Early in the new year, I wandered out to our mud room, aka side entry, to put some recycling in the bin, and was greeted with this.
I ran to grab my new camera, then had to go back to put a memory card in it (sheesh!)
It was snowing and the starlings didn’t stay long after I started taking pictures. Two minutes elapsed between the first and last.
Photos taken with a Pentax K3, and a Tamron 28-200 zoom lens. The one of just the birds and the wire at 200mmm, the others between 53 and 75 mm. Handheld at various settings.
In a neighbourhood full of pedestrians and street life, deliveries must go on, and sometimes traffic has to be held up to do it.
