Cuba-141

r Cuba-141Cuba-141This is an early shot I did one morning at Royalton Hicacos, Varadero Cuba. It was one of the first I converted to a Wall mount.
When my old colleagues and my family saw it they said it look like a painting and it was as though they were heading to the beach.
That's when I began thinking about "camera art".

 

Se trata de un "levantamiento temprano" shot que hice una mañana en el Royalton Hicacos, Varadero Cuba.

Fue uno de los primeros que convierte en un soporte de pared.
Cuando mis viejos colegas y miembros de mi familia lo vio lo dijo parece una pintura y era como si se dirigían a la playa.
Que es cuando empecé a pensar sobre el "arte de la cámara".

Moving in the Spirit-12Moving in the Spirit-12Nearing the "Bocas" in Port of Spain ,Trinidad on my way to Tobago on September ,13,2016. I am on the ferry "T & T Spirit. You can see the Waterfront in silhouette against the morning sunlight/sunrise which is reflected on the waves of the rippling waters of the ocean, created by the ferry's engine(s).
The sky and clouds give a colorful contrast as a backdrop.

Sunrise from Port Avenue-23

Sunrise from Port Avenue-23Sunrise from Port Avenue-23I have submitted three of these on my website just to obtain feedback. I am suggesting that this and the others may be or could be seen as still life photography. Tell me what are your thoughts.
I looked up Wikipedia and they speak about "groups of inanimate objects". I do have a monochrome version of a group of boats as #18 here. Would you consider that a still life?

Or am I stretching the concept?

 


I Am Coming Out!

June 25, 2017

I Am Coming Out!I Am Coming Out!This is me announcing the arrival of the sun as though it is a "human". This shot was taken on one of my early morning walks along the Malecón. This area (Avenida de Puerto) is usually the final stage in my walks. I begin in the area of the National hotel in Vedado.
Most times I leave the apartment around 4.am to the sounds of advice, pleading, opposition and warnings(of possible danger) of my partner,.
After some time it became like the morning "cancion". I used the word not in English because the pleadings are always in Spanish.
But I must say people, although I am out at that hour her words are never taken or seen glibly.
I try my best to be very aware of my surroundings. But if you wish to explore the kind of work that I have set myself you have to be ready to be out at any time.
And you should remember how I shoot-without a tripod. So I don't even have that to ward off a possible vagabond.

 

 I am announcing the arrival of the Sun as if it were a "human being".

This photo was taken from one of my walks,  early in the morning along the Malecon.

This area (Avenida de Puerto) is usually the final stage. I begin at the Hotel Nacional in  Vedado.
When I leave  on mornings around 4 a.m. I am usually advised and/or warned about  leaving at that time by my partner.
 And even though the same "song" is repeated every morning as I am about to leave and I still do leave and I don't take her words lightly.
  But if one wants to explore Cuba, and Havana, especially-minus a tripod(which can sometimes double-up as a weapon  to ward off a bandit),You have to take some measure of risks and be ready to shoot at anytime,  you just have to keep your awareness heightened.

 

  Notwithstanding, I feel very safe in Cuba in comparison to some other countries that I have visited.
