I recently went through my photos from Cuba. When I originally sorted and worked my images from that trip, I did not find these interesting. Or they didn’t represent what I was feeling at the time. I have to admit I don’t remember. But on the revisit, I fell in love with Cuba all over again. Enjoy these “new” images!
Images from a trip through the countryside. We visited a baseball team, a historic coffee plantation and farm restaurant.

I found myself fascinated with many different styles of architecture, including Art Deco, Colonial, and Spanish. They would often all be on the same building.

After working several of my photos from Cuba, I decided to try something different. I wanted to emphasize the idea of travel and adventure that drives me. I have always loved the beauty of maps and so decided to integrate my love of photography and my love of maps.

I recently traveled to the beautiful island of Cuba. The visit was amazing, the people were wonderful, and the rum a little too drinkable. Here are some pics from the trip. Cuba was indeed a photographer’s dream. From the newly painted colorful buildings of Trinidad, to the old world architecture of Havana, it had a little bit of everything. The architecture of Cuba is a mix of Spanish and English Colonialism, as there were held by both for many years. Currently, Cuba is a country in flux. They are rebuilding and renovating. Most of the Cubans we met were very optimistic about their future. I had a wonderful time and look forward to returning some day.
