Photographer's Note

First of all, I'd like to wish all TE members who celebrate Christmas, a Merry Christmas! Its a time of year to spend less time at work and more with our family and friends.

I apologize for not posting a Holiday photo, there hasn't been much in the way of snow here in Vancouver, just rain. I'll try to find a winter photo for you soon :)

As for my photo today from Cuba, I went with "Darkness on the Edge of Town" from Bruce Springsteen - my idol. Springsteen is famous for writing songs about cars, classic cars, lovers getting lost on the hwy's in cars, he uses cars as a romantic metaphor over and over again. So this scene just seemed to fit that motif.

I found this beauty of a beast while walking the "Backstreets" (another Springsteen song) of Havana on our first night in the city. We arrived at 8 pm, we got settled into our Casa by about 930pm and I wanted to get out there and take photos. Tosca didn't take her camera with her on this photo shoot, saying she's too tired, i thought she was CRAZY!

As we walked the backstreets, not knowing where we were going, we bumped into this car and Tosca regretted leaving her camera at the Casa.

This photo is HDR, three long exposures of 8 sec, 7 sec, and 9 sec. Hope you like it.
In the WS is another view of the same car.

Happy Holidays!
