One Street, Three Perspectives – Holguin City Cuba

These photos are taken in Holguin City, Cuba.  We ate at a 3rd story restaurant, so as I walked down the stairs on the outside of the building, I took the opportunity to frame this street from more than one vantage point.  I find it interesting how each one tells a story of the city in a different way.




The first story to me is about architecture and the layout of the street, the second about the life and people of the city, and the latter photo is more about the man standing in his outdoor shop.  Although I love all three for different reasons- I think I prefer the third- where the focus is more on an individual.  Perhaps it’s because am primarily a portrait photographer, I am drawn to capture images of people more than scenery.  What do you see in these images, and are you partial to a particular point of view?

On another note, Personal shops like this are everywhere in the city.  We were told by our tour guide that Private businesses have been allowed for the last few years under the rule of Fidel’s brother Raul Castro.

    My personal favorite is the first one. I like the way that it shows both sides of the street as well as the mountain in the background. I find the area on the left side to be fascinating, with open doors, exposed bricks, and other interesting details. You give a sense of the activity of the street and draw the viewer in to explore the different activities. Finally, I love the colors of the buildings.
