Malecón de Habana at sunset
I have visited Cuba on several occasions. Cuba is a wonderful place to photograph. Havana, in particular, is a street photographer's paradise. The Cuban people are very friendly, and the streets are alive with life.
The image is shot during a beautiful warm sunset along the wall of Malecón, La Habana, Cuba. Locals gather and enjoy the beautiful oceanfront sunset over the Straits of Florida. The entire scene of the sea wall, old classic architecture buildings, and the waterfront street glowing in the beautiful light.
The street photograph does not focus on any one individual or group doing exciting things, but the image is about the local people as a whole, taking time out to enjoy some of the simple beauties of life—the warmth of the sun, the sound of children playing, and the laughter of friends and loved ones. Take a moment, close your eyes, feel the heat on your face, and breathe and imagine sitting on this wall.
