For my Stills moment I wanted to do something a little bit different. I love Alaska and all that it has to offer, but I wanted to share two of my favorite photos from a recent trip to Cuba.
I spent a good amount of my time in Cuba riding around in cabs. Normally, I’d be bothered by that, but most of the Cuban cabs are old Chevrolet Bel Airs, so I wasn’t complaining. One of the best parts about riding in so many cabs was that it offered a unique perspective of the Havana scenery, and was rewarding if you were quick enough. This moment, of a mother and her child (I'm assuming), was so appealing to me. The colors, the realness of it all, I loved it. The frame was provided by pure luck.
This photo was taken during my time in Trinidad, Cuba. Trinidad was so lively and colorful. The residents there had a playful way of shit talking Havana that I really liked. This gentleman spent his entire day sitting on the curb, writing in his notepad. What he was writing, I have no clue, but after my third time seeing him that day I went up and asked him for a photo. He was kind enough to oblige. He cracked the slightest of smiles, I made my photograph and we shook hands.
