Great textures and murky light add to the atmosphere.

That's fair comment Gareth . Indeed I was wandering around the region of old Havana when I spotted this old chap chilling with his ragged dog. I nodded at him indicating that I wanted to take his picture ( I can't speak a word of Spanish ), he quietly nodded back. Was refreshing to take an image in Cuba without this chap asking for money. Found that everyone wanted their palms greased, of course it's a poor region but if you gave something to everyone you would run out of money in 2 days! But damn I gave him a little something cos he didn't ask for nothing..soft touch see.

Simon.

Hi Simon,

Had that problem in Indoa the first time we went..literally went broke one day before we came back & had to stay hotel side.

Learnt from that though & got a bit more savvy on future visits.

.............................your way ahead of me there Smile
