Writing with Light

Back from Cuba

It seems that I disappeared a couple of weeks ago without a word or a holiday wish to all of you and for that I apologize. I hope you’ve all had a wonderful holiday. I got walloped with a nasty cold which really did me in before the holidays and then I was off to Cuba.

Cuba is a place that I’ve always wanted to visit and photograph but this was a family vacation. One glorious week of sun and sand at a resort in Varadero with the kids. We did get to Havana for a day, which was certainly not long enough, but it did give a small taste of this wonderful city and its people. I’ll have more images and stories in the weeks to come but for now I just want to wish you all a Happy New Year.

    Happy holidays to you too Edith. Cuba has always been on my bucket list. The photos I have seen of Cuba always have vintage cars in them so I was not surprised to see one in yours. Great shot. Looking forward to more photos from your trip.

    • Thanks Len.
      Cuba has always been on my list and now that I’ve been there I know I have to get back with photography being the focal point of the trip.

        Happy New Year! xx

  4. Happy holidays Edith. Sounds like a great trip! My son and his girlfriend just booked a trip to Cuba for their reading week in February, and my son will love it if he sees cars like that everywhere :).

    So glad you’re feeling better and had an opportunity to visit Cuba. Its a place I have always wanted to visit, mainly because of the vintage old cars and architecture. Looking forward to seeing some of your other shots from there.

    Happy New Year!

    I have indeed wondered where you’d been! Glad to hear all is well and that you had a wonderful week of sun, sand, and a bit of photography.
    I’ve always heard that Cuba is the wish list for photographers, but not always known why. I look forward to learning that from you.
    Happy New Year, Edith!

  17. I’ve been a tad under the weather myself here Edith, I hope you’re over that now and feeling better. You know how much I love those ol’ classics, and this beaut of a ’55 Chev Bel-Air is wonderful, a shot I really really enjoyed. Looking forward to seeing more from your visit!!
