Pigeons Flying in Historic Plaza Vieja, Havana

As I wandered through the vibrant streets of downtown Havana, the lively Plaza Vieja came into view. This black-and-white photograph captures a moment of tranquility amidst the usual hustle and bustle of Cuban life. The image shows pigeons taking flight, their wings a blur against the historic buildings that frame the square.

The architecture in Plaza Vieja is a stunning example of Cuban Baroque mixed with eclectic influences from the colonial period. The balconies' intricate ironwork and the soft, weathered facades tell stories of a bygone era. Each building, with its unique character, adds to the charm of this bustling square.

In the background, you can see the tall, narrow windows and grand archways typical of this area. The sunlight filtering through the clouds creates a beautiful contrast, highlighting the textures and details of the old stone and brickwork. The shadows cast by the flying pigeons add depth and movement to the scene, making it feel alive and dynamic.

This fine art photograph is not just an image but a slice of Havana's daily life, where the old meets the new in a dance of light and shadow. Plaza Vieja's history is rich, dating back to the 16th century when it served as a marketplace and social hub. Today, it remains a vibrant center of activity, reflecting the enduring spirit of the Cuban people.

Standing in this square, I felt the pulse of the city, a blend of past and present, tradition and modernity. The pigeons, oblivious to the history around them, continue their timeless dance, symboling freedom and peace. In its simplicity, this image captures Havana's essence - a constantly moving city, always alive yet rooted deeply in its rich cultural heritage
