Photographer's Note

This will be the first of many photos from my trip to Cuba.

The country and people touched me in so many way, it would be hard for me to put it into words. Thank goodness I brought my camera.

Traveling in Cuba is very much like taking a time machine to the 1950s. Evidence of the trade embargo can be seen in everyday life. The streets are still filled with classic Cadillacs and beat up Ladas. People still dry their clothing on lines and people chat on their porch rather than through their computers.

I tried to document the daily life of Cubans as best I could with my street photography. Hopefully you all enjoy these photos.
