Photographer's Note

No, its not MY photo thats the most famous photograph in the world...i wish!

Its the photograph of Che Guevara in the bg to the left, taken on March 5, 1960.

Its impossible to walk anywhere in Cuba without seeing this photograph, or at least others similar to it.

Che Guevara is a Cuban Icon. He was a Marxist Revolutionary, a physician, author, guerrilla leader, diplomat,a military theorist, played a major role in the Cuban Revolution, he also was the driving force of successful Nationwide Literacy campaign. I could go on and on listing his achievements, but i'll take up a few pages.

TIME Magazine also named him one of the world's most influential people of the 20th Century. And that photo you see in the bg is actually one of the world's most famous photo's of people.

Amazing how some achieve so much, and he lived to the young age of only 39, as he was executed. Reading his bio, I suddenly feel the urge to get out there and do a little bit more than I usually do today
haha

As for my not so famous photograph here, I bravely approached this man as he was having a drink at a local bar, he gladly approved :)

have a great TE Day everyone!
