Cuban People #1 Charming Woman


A very sweet woman willingly posed for this Americana without asking for any money, but I gave her a peso.  There are some people who consider posing for tourists a "job" which gives them extra income. And, believe it or not, one peso means a good deal to some of the people I met on the street.

  12. My goodness, is she ever a beauty, and how well you've caught her! This is a fabulous portrait!

    Thank you for the link to the Nacionale. Did you stay in one of its storied famous person rooms? I'm glad they've managed to keep it alive; it certainly has had its share of glamor.

  14. She is very attractive and your photo is excellent. You've captured what appears to be a kind and I would guess, spunky, woman who may not have much, but is loving life to the best of her ability!
