Photographer's Note

Where do I start with this story?

If you search on the internet you'll find many photos of 1 paticular old woman in Havana with a HUGE Cigar sticking out of her mouth. She has strange eye glasses, strange clothes, and pink/red lipstick that looks like it was put on while blind folded!

Needless to say, that woman is a Character!
She poses for people to have her photograph taken, and yes, you do have to pay her a tiny sum of money...but its all in good fun.

So we found out where she 'hangs' out in Havana and searched for her. We searched and searched...but couldn't locate her.

We talked to a few locals, asked some questions.
Turns out the Old lady died only a couple months ago, she was in her 90's.

Well, wouldn't you know it...by pure luck or genious
(i prefer to think it was genious haha)
as we were walking away in disappointment of the news, i walked right passed this local.

I turned to my girlfriend Tosca and said...should I go up to that man and just ask for a photo? He was proud to do so. I asked him to stand in front of the Cathedral in the bg, not only because its a great bg subject, but also to block out the bright sunlight.

Guess you never know how things will turn out!
Thanks for looking
