These girls were leaning on this old car (no idea on the make.. but I love the spring under it) as we walked by and agreed to pose for me. Most people were very obliging when asked if I could take their picture. I would have liked the background to be more out of focus, but it is what it is.
Thanks for looking and for any comments and/or criticisms.

Brilliant shot. And so good of them to pose, they look great. The car's a dream and I love being able to see the background detail. Lovely.

Very Cuba, Ann I think the flavour is very good, lovely colours and all that light bouncing around makes it difficult to shoot wide open. Almost all of the cars here are very old American cars, cannibalised by clever mechanics out of the lack of genuine spare parts.

Looking good keep them coming.

I guess this is what might call a "posed candid" if such a description is acceptable, Ann: I rather like the fact that the b/g is reasonably in focus too.

glad it isn't out of focus. I love all these detail , to see a country I'll probably never see.
the whole picture is so full of interest, the girls, the car, and the spring (which I suspect to be of mattress origin Smile)
