Your recent images of Cuba are bringing back some memories of my trip there back in 1993.
I remember when we left our hotel at the end of our stay , the staff were lining the footsteps holding carrier bags as they hoped guests would deposit their unused toiletries for them, as soap, toothpaste , etc etc was in short supply and prohibitively expensive.
This is the typical Cuban smile that I remember do well.

I love these Cuba shots of yours, Ann. What a wonderful colour portrait of a relaxed man with red eyes!SmileSmileSmileSmileSmile

Well I lost the comment giving the award so I'll start again.

Fabulous character study full of detail and with the lovely colours of Cuba around your sitter. I'm sure I can smell that stogie in his mouth. Not now but sometime in the future it might be worth converting this to monochrome, it could look good.

Another lovely image from this island and good use of the reflected light in the shade.

What a fantastic character. The colour of his chair against those shutters is excellent. An all round top pic.

Sunshine, a rocking chair, cigar and last year's fashion in headware.......what more could a chap ask for: fine portrait shot of the old man, full of the flavour (and possibly for you the aroma, from the cigar that is) of old Havana.

Wonderful charater study, Ann, with the ubiquitous cigar. This had Cuba stamped all over it before I even opened the thumbnail.

Happiness is a charming blond lady asking to take your picture... You made his day.
This is wonderful Ann. The portrait says it all, no narrative needed, which is the sign of a top class image
One to be proud of!
