Scars of the City..

By BURNBLUE  
Spent some time in Havana Cuba recently. I tried to steer clear of the done to death old cars and cigar smoking Amigos, but rather concentrated on interiors, got into the homes of the everyday cuban families. The young girl lived with her family in a crumbling old building near old Havana ..

Exactly!

Must admit that I'd love to go to Cuba just to further do to death the old cars, but its never likely to happen!

Not even glass in the window where the lovely light is coming from. Sad and beautiful at the same time.......Sandy

This series has been very thought provoking and has given us an insight into their daily lives which we do not see in the usual travel photographs taken in Cuba. Fine work once again
