Wow, lots of fascinating images, Svjetlana!

The images show an enormous contrast - between joy and depression, between colorfulness and dreariness - anyway, many of them are touching.

Did you also shoot film? #17 an #18 of in the set you posted before this one look like shot on film.

Great work!

This thread is a real feast for the eyes, and beautifully captures Havana's character in all its variety. Looking under the surface things are rather run down, but the mood of the place seems bright.
The restored 1950s and 1960s American cars are sights to behold. Totally over the top space-age designs teetering on under-engineered suspensions and fading brakes, and not a safety feature between them.
Love the images with the people - the carnival costumes, the bustling bars. And of course that inadvertent "selfie" with the barber and his customer.

Chris, @luke: thank you

David: thank you. Since I don't watch TV I had to look up "Black Sails" on internet.   

Harald: thank you; that is not film but processing. It was few years ago but I think it was NIK nostalgic filter.

Joe: thank you;

I would always take it this way rather than the opposite. In many societies of this day and age looking under the surface things are rather shiny and bright but the mood of the place is rather 'run down'.

Ine: thank you; it was 3 years ago. Yes, I know what you mean about cars. This was processed at that time but I have many many more that I need to process about half of it. I was very busy at that time but hopefully soon I will do it.

Glad you found the time. A nice colourful series from a place that is still on my wishlist.
I like # 2, 4, 7 and 9 the most.
Keep them coming!

Keep them coming Svetlana! Your extensive series could save me a trip to Cuba, although I would love to see these lovely scenes and atmoshere in person.

Fred: thanks, images are one thing and personal experience is something competently different. If you really have intention of going there go sooner rather than later.
