Photographer's Note

I know this photo certainly won't be winning any awards, its quite rudimentary and basic. Sometimes though its not about the bright lights and beautiful colors, its about the scene itself.

So I guess thats what I have here.

Traveling to Cuba, I knew I'd have to step it UP a notch and be braver in approaching people for photos.

This scene here is that in a nutshell.
Tosca and I had walked right past this local barber shop...we were just a half block away, i turned to Tosca and said...I just have to get a photo from the inside!

She told me to go for it so i did. I walked back, stepped inside the front door (which is open anyways because its Havana) politely asked if I could take a quick photo.

The barber in the fg on the left nodded. So i took a couple of shots with my wide angle.

You can see that not everyone approved. The young man in the back is covering his face with his hat.

And if you look real close, you can see me in the mirror on the back wall, to the left of the black poster, i'm holding the camera up to my face.

I'm glad the wide angle got everyone in the scene. Not a pretty photo, but i think an interesting one with locals doing what locals do. Think about it, have you ever seen the inside of a Cuban Barber Shop before?

Hope you appreciate this one.
