While on an Irma relief trip in Santa Clara, i was visiting provinces affected by the hurricane. My friends and I came across kids finishing school. My friends were the perfect distraction for them, not to notice me and let me take this picture.
Trinidad. A boy playing, unintentionally posing with a cross.
Vinales. In Cuba, everyone is always working, fixing, re-building, hoping for a better future.
Cienfuegos. What can i say… A classic. A cliche. Call it what you want, you can’t walk by without taking a picture.
Havana. Back to a sports area…Trying to capture everything, but sports.
Old Havana. A family spotted through a window.
One of the most interesting places in Havana are the sports areas that are spread out throughout the city. Some are hidden and small some are huge and sometimes abandoned. While strolling through one of them in Centro Havana I saw a buy climbing and jumping through a fence.
