Where do I even start this?

I am home from Havana,Cuba and have 2500 photos. yes, 2500. I know my approach...I want to remember EVERY second and try to capture what I saw....The unusual, the faces, the gritty. If I could only take these photos and turn them into a "scratch and sniff", I could relive the Cuban experience everyday. I loved it and would go back in an instant. Beam me there Scotty.

I like to place my age when I take photos...just in case I forget. This was a house number.


Art and artists

Ahem...notice the apprentice to the left.


I took drawing paper and colored pencils to give to the kids

School kids

Friendly people who loved having their photo taken

Beautiful buildings and old cars

We were invited into homes

I saw lots of dogs

Religious icons



and me.
