Havana, Cuba 2008

These shots are a few of those that I took during a week in Havana in 2008. It's a fascinating city, although I know I did no more than scratch the surface of the place.

  • Callejón de Hamel
    Murals by Cuban artist Salvador González Escalona, and I was told this is his car.
  • In front of the Hotel Nacional
  • No entry
  • Statue of José Martí
  • Capitolio
  • The dome of the Capitolio
  • Another side of Havana
    Some modern glass-fronted buildings are appearing, and it's not all the 'faded grandeur' that we often see in pictures.
