nice ive taken many of tetekawi,but this one is a good shot:)
nice i go down there once or twice a year love it!
In my younger days I surfed all the good places many times for years from Santa Cruz down into Mexico. Beaches attract me. Love to buy and live here. To far from Southern CA to drive often and plane ownership is out of my reach. So I come and dream. Met some folks trying to sell their 3,500sq/ft home here for $225K. They taxi their plane to front door. Gorgeous home with two acres walled in. Don't speak spanish and friends count more than the ocean.....sigh, LOL
We hired a van off cruise ship to take about 8 of us on a tour. Visited southern part of city which is older I believe. Homes build on very steep slopes to each get a share of the ocean bay view.
Zihuatanejo, Mexico; spent the day snorkling off beach to right of this view.
Hope you speak English? Spent over an hour looking at many of you pictures. My comments here are for all the ones I have seen.
First time I have been able to see Cuba through a Cubans eyes. Looks like a wonderful Country in many ways. Thank you very much for this opportunity.
I also take pictures of my travels. Been taking pictures for many years but digital has changed everything for me. Unfortunately only my digital pictures can be posted. From my digital experiences I would humbly suggest a little lighter touch on the "saturation" edits. Meaning sometimes the reds and blues and greens are a little on the strong side. Less so but some lean toward "warming" a little strong too. Over all I very much like your pictures. Can you download Picasa3 from Google for editing? It is free.
Another thing I noticed from my travels is the Cuba's streets are generally empty of people. Take the one above. This picture shows more people than most. Many city scenes are nearly empty of people. Where are they? Maybe you took some pictures very early in the morning before people come out? Are there other reasons?
If you walked down city streets in any other country the sidewalks would be full of people. If you are used to so few people you might be uncomfortable out of Cuba. If you have seen scenes of foreign cities you know what I mean?
If you speak English and it is possible to email me direct it might be interesting to talk. I am a retired architect near Sacramento, California on the west side of the US. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org My name is Barry Speer and politically I am a Democrat meaning I am for in favor of you type of government although with a lot more voting by the people to say what they want. Wealthy people and corporations can be good for societies if they are not allowed too much power and control which is becoming a bigger problem in the US in my opinion. I could be wrong but in my 69 years that is how it seems to me.
Sincerely, Barry Speer
What an artistic wonder. So glad you shared this and the others here. It looks to be fairly new construction. The Balinese are so amazing their relatively small island is world famous. Thank you for taking these high quality pictures. I live close to Sacramento, California in the US.
Had dinner watching the moon come up. After dinner set up tripod on boardwalk for 18 sec. exposure. Mist from the marine layer, high fog, surrounds the moon. Shrimpers prepared their boats for all night fishing. Often they go out 20 miles to set their nets across the 30' tides which push the shrimp into the nets. Wonder if native Americans have done this for centuries past? Shape of the coast makes this a perfect place the launch boats with mountain to north which shaped bay over centuries of tide flows. Now I heard over fishing has caused government to close fishing. All that leaves is tourism. There is no water for agriculture.

Standing on the northwest side looking southeast. Pointed red steps in front of Wright's residence at this school. Living room is behind white outdoor couch. Note unique canvas/plastic white roof over living with end sloping to right side. Wright often designed to avoid "square corners". School administration offices far left. Large drafting classroom out of pic further left. See other pictures here. Student dorms upstairs far left. Although some interior room details seemed impractical to me over all the complex is an American architectural treaure.
