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.
Having started a series of posts of Cuban people, now I jump from children to older folks.
More seniors next week.
Although religion was rather frowned upon in Revolutionary Cuba, adherents to Roman Catholicism and its many churches continue to exist. Some are in better shape than others. Our Cuban photo tour workshop leader took us to this one – which is on the border between Central Havana and the neighbourhood of Vedado.
I entered this picture in our local photo show in the Church category. I got an honourable mention…
This is the last of three posts of 16 dogs in Cuba. Some dogs were beloved family pets and the owners were quite willing to show them off.
I love this one. I think the dog was blind even though it appears to be looking at me.
I don’t pretend to understand the significance of the doll, but thought it was an interesting juxtaposition with a dog named Gorki.
Okay – what does the cartoon on the left of this picture remind you of? It’s why I took the photo the way I did, but none of my photography tour colleagues agreed with me.
Five more photos, four more dogs…
Some dogs seemed to be street creatures, and others were pampered. Some had license tags, others not. Some seemed to belong to a particular street, this first one was in the middle of a huge plaza in Old Havana.
No collar on this one.
A collar with a bell.
This little guy was about the size of a Chihuahua and he knew he was cute. One of my friends posed him on the box for colour contrast.
