Plaza de la Catedral (Cathedral Square), Havana

In Feburary 2009 we went to Varadero, Cuba for our winter vacation.  Cuba is an interesting place to take pictures, and even though it wasn’t my favourite destination, I would like to go back just to take pictures (also because I think I’m a better photographer now and have a better camera!).  It’s a very colourful place. We spent an afternoon in Havana, which was way too short, but we did manage to wander around through the most historic part of the city.  These are pictures from Plaza de la Catedral in late afternoon.

Havana, Cuba

A few years ago, I went to Varadero, Cuba for a winter escape.  We befriended some people there who took us on a day trip to Havana.  We ended up being there for only a few hours but this is where I really began to enjoy taking pictures.  These are some of the pictures I took of people in Old Havana near Plaza Vieja (the Old Square).  I didn’t love Cuba, but I would go back to Havana. The second last picture is of the couple who took us to Havana (and that is a story in itself)!
