- Loyal Citizen, Habana Vieja; I met this gentleman late one afternoon on the streets of Old Havana as I was making my way back to my hotel ... What a trip he was ๐Ÿ˜‚ Without a doubt, my favorite thing to do in Havana (photography aside, claro), is to stop, meet, and have a chat with the amazing people that give Havana/Cuba its very heart & soul ... It sounds like a cliche, I know, but itโ€™s absolutely true ... Cuba is its people ... Itโ€™s also actually pretty damn ironic, given I basically do the exact opposite when Iโ€™m at home in the States ... I honestly donโ€™t know why, but, inevitably, itโ€™s 10,000x easier for me to strike up a sincere organic conversation with a total stranger in a foreign land than it is to do so with the people Iโ€™m surrounded by on a daily basis at home ... and btw, just to be clear, thatโ€™s on me, not on them ... Ultimately though, itโ€™s yet another reason why I love and miss Cuba so much ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

- Colors, Centro Habana; I truly hope everyone is doing well wherever you may be in the world. My bad for disappearing for so long, nothing more than a new job. Thankfully I havenโ€™t been in a Cuban prison, nor have I been the victim of a Cuban sonic attack. Anyway, I sincerely appreciate everyone whoโ€™s reached out to make sure Iโ€™m still alive and kicking. In retrospect, I should have checked my notifications more than once every six months. You live and you learn. Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to those who celebrate. Iโ€™ll try not and be such a stranger from now on โœŒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜… ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ

- La Habana, Cuba - street view, Old Havana; as I'm sure all photographers know and/or realize at some point in time ๐Ÿค” or,maybe it's just me ๐Ÿค” But, as I've said before, I can recall with almost 'Rainman' like certainty certain details when looking over thousands to each of of my Cuba images. In fact, using the image above, exhibit A (not my fav pic btw), but I still wanted to post it bc (1) I recall so vividly how ridiculously hot it was that very moment as I was chasing ... ummm ๐Ÿค” ... walking faster than usual ... towards that blue car (sรญ, the car only ๐Ÿ˜‚) ... which leads me to memory number two (2) man I absolutely loved the way that hot af sun/light was reflecting off that beautiful blue paint job, giving it a certain cooler balance to the warm feel of the shot, at least IMO ๐Ÿ˜‚. So, Thank God for always giving me the stubbornness to pursue most shots, BUT ... the memories alone from this one image ALWAYS make smile, and, let's face it, we all struggle to find those smiling days sometimes, which is exactly why I love photography so damn much ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

- La Habana, Cuba - more amazing colors from Centro Habana; you know, when I think about it ๐Ÿค” I must look pretty damn ridiculous when I'm out shooting walking the streets of Havana ... I say that bc I literally walk around with this goofy-ass smile on my grill like 95% of the time bc of all the beauty and crazy-good scenery that surrounds me ... Now, am I also surrounded by tremendous hardships? Claro, BUT, there's also endless life & beauty ... all you have to do is slow down long enough to see & appreciate it ... btw, now that I really think about it ๐Ÿค” the goofy smile actually starts on the plane every single time I get my first glimpse of the island ... thankfully tho it then goes back into hiding until I hit the streets ๐Ÿ˜‚ Feliz Lunes a todos ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

- La Habana, Cuba - Admiring beauty in Centro Habana; this car was being used in a reggaeton music video shoot that was taking place as I happened to be walking by ... at the time I shot this image though, the car wasn't being used for the particular scene being shot, so it was parked behind the set ... this gave everyone, myself included, an opportunity to check out this absolutely beautiful Classic American Beauty ... As everyone knows, there are many, many beautiful classic cars roaming the streets of Cuba ... That said, this one was in as good a condition as any I've seen before or since, and that's exactly why it had so many admirers. Again, myself included ๐Ÿ‘€ ... ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ

- La Habana, Cuba - I came across this guy and his ride on one of my fav streets in all of Havana, Calle San Lรกzaro; And, as you can see, he was steady rockin' some super legit tail-fins ๐Ÿ˜ tbh, I half expected a Cuban Batman to come bouncing outta the window once the car finally came to a stop ๐Ÿ˜‚ oh, and btw, I realize some may consider it cliche to consistently shoot those beautifully unique old cars buzzing around Havana ... More importantly though, I also realize IDGAF ๐Ÿ™ƒ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ™ƒ Speaking of which ... Here is my two cents worth of free advice for the day ... Shoot what makes you happy, and what makes you smile ... and that's it ... It really IS that simple ... Focus on what makes you happy and then shoot whatever it may be that gives you that warm & fuzzy feeling we all get when we finally capture that ever-elusive image we spend our days chasing, but rarely catch ... or maybe that's just me ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธ
