Street Photography in Old Havana

Havana is one of those places that is just perfect for street photography. The people, the architecture, it seems that in some areas time has just stood still.

It was a beautiful sunny day as I was walking through the streets, the buildings alternating from yellow to rose to blue, it was truly beautiful but for some reason as I was processing these images the black and white rendition provided that timeless, classic look I was looking for. I promise I will share some colour images as well but for now I hope you enjoy these.

    I just left another blogger who will soon be posting his photos from Cuba. I’m excited to learn more about the architecture of this country. These buildings do seem to be made for B&W
