Trinidad, Cuba. I've been spotted by the guy in the middle..
Thanks for looking and for any comments/criticisms.
And a big thank you to John (alsoppdigitalart) for his UA for Another day in Havana - it is much appreciated and valued.

There is so much scope in this subject, it's universal...
The guy on the right has paused in mid step for a chat (I love that awkward foot), the one in the middle is far more interested in What the hell is that crazy lady doing...?

Excellent processing again, Ann, and the diagonal line of sight between the two outer figures makes a great composition, especially with the eye contact you've got with the middle one cutting across it.

Sit or stand around, enjoy a smoke and complain about the back that aches from all the effort involved in the start of the sentence. Only the shopping bag doesn't quite fit - until you realise that it is conspicuous by its emptiness!
A well-seen candid, local colour at its most typical.

Dancing feet, the flavour of the Caribbean in this one without doubt Ann. Always time for some jaw time. The shopper looks empty so nothing is going off in the wheat, "just too hot to rush around".

I seem to recall you saying the other day that it was too hot to go outside.

Ann,
This has so much going for it. To be able to compose like this (with your subjects on the 1/3rd lines) in a candid shot is really something.
Besides the comp., I really like the colors and detail.
