Cuban Beauty

Street art in Havana,  Cuba,  December 2016



The worn and peeling walls with their warm but fading colours combine perfectly with the  beauty of this portrait.

      1. Didn’t strike me as a huge amount when I was there, but looking back at my images, I think you’re right. Not on Shoreditch scale, but plenty of good stuff around. I’ve made a list of things to do when (I hope) I get back and finding more street art is on that list!

      2. Our local guide booked for us – only the day before and had to be lunch not dinner. I was very surprised that we got in! And very pleased 😀

    1. Me too. It was my camera that got me out wandering and being observant. I am amazed at the quality and variety of street art. And to achieve such perfection while perched on a ladder or dangling from scaffolding is even more stunning. Especially for Mrs Vertigo!

    1. You’re right there – many SD cards, and a good hard drive for daily backups. I came back with over 5000 images! And the raw shots are 24Kb-84Kb each depending on which camera they come from. I’m glad data isn’t heavy!!


  1. 5000 shots! what a treasure! I wonder how much time it takes you to sort them out :-). mural is beautiful as well as both pictures each with its live element.


    1. It takes me forever I think! Quite a few were moving classic cars and several can be discarded immediately.

      It was just a wonderful country. With a bit of everything.
