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.

I’m really enjoying learning from Christina Craft at FunkyTown Photography…. even an unexpected setting like a parking garage can have dramatic light for photos.
