Cuban Faces Let You Know

Cuban Faces Let You Know

Cubans, even city folk from Havana, are friendly by nature. Cuban faces soon let you know how welcome you are.

The street photographer usually can depend on the same routine. Not that anything or anyone on the street is ever routine or predictable. A quick exchange, a nod, a response, friendly smiles and presto, a connection is solidified. The dropping of a few CUC’s (“convertible” money/pesos in local parlance) helps. Stating the word “Canada” often instantaneously takes advantage of the warm relations between Cuba and Canada. The ones that never got frosty through the American embargoes and frigid oratory that even the warmest Caribbean breezes could not thaw to rapprochement. There are Cuban faces to capture under hot rod hoods, faces making and smoking cigars, spontaneous conversational encounters (melodious and verbal) and even grannies keeping a vigil on Cuban life streaming by.

The heart of Cuba is its people. You can tell by the faces.
