Nice. That's a part of Havana where I've never been... Is that a crop or a stitched picture?

If we ever happen to be in Havana at the same time I will most gladly take you to a lot of neighbourhoods (Luyanó, Santos Suárez, La Víbora, Lawton, Cerro, Altahabana, Marianao, La Lisa, etc.) I take "guaguas" and I don't take photos from inside a car.

I stitched two photos (it's better viewed enlarged, the colours seem to be enhanced).

Very good picture Draken! I have been in Havana, so I know how old, but sometimes beautiful the buildings are. What a fantastic place that must have been in the past...

Greetings from Ria

Hi, Ria

Thank you very much for your comment. Sorry, I didn't get in touch before but I was in Havana taking pictures. I took around 1400 pictures in 14 days. I guess 300 will be worth uploading but of course I have to adjust/photoshop every one. So it will be a slow process but I hope you will like the results.

Yes, Havana is a fascinating city with wonderful places and a we can still enjoy the architecture no matter how derelict it is at some neighbourhoods.

Don't you have photos taken in Cuba yourself?

Best regards,

He estado dos veces en La Habana (la última por un mes en 1997) y sigo enamorado de esa hermosa ciudad, aunque este descuidada. Viva Cuba siempre.
