April 23, Miami, Florida

Leaving the humidity of the East and making my journey back to the west coast from Cuba. Many friends have been made. Wonderful memories of colour, vibrancy of Havana and and shared time in the plantation style lobby of the Hotel Parque Centrale with other photographers on our tour.

Havana: Day 3

Havana: Day 2

Today we met in the lobby at 6 a.m. for a much need cappuccino. From there we walked before sunrise through the local neighbourhood streets where I captured some interior images that seemed best suited to be rendered in black and white.

Havana: Day 1

We arrived in Havana this afternoon. The big attraction for me right now is the old vintage cars but the one image I liked the most was captured at a restaurant near our Hotel Parque Centrale.

Corrida de Toros in Lisbon

This photo was taken in September of 2014 when I joined Arthur Meyerson and Keron Psillas for a two week photography tour in Portugal. We attended a traditional bullfight at the Campo Pequeno in Lisbon and it was a wonderful experience.
