Havana – Red Cars and Street Views

Havana, Cuba, 10 September 2016

.

This is the second of our three days in Havana after the end of the tour.  We hired one of our local guides to show us around Havana.  These images are from the first part of that day.  For the first seven or eight images we were on foot, heading for a taxi stand.

Looking down a street.

This image was a challenge in processing.  Part of it was in bright sunlight and part in deep shadow.  I had taken three exposures to cover the tonal range but combining them was very tricky due to the complex tonal boundaries, even using luminosity masking in Photoshop.

In between this image and the next one, we visited the Fusterlandia street art zone.  That will be the next post.

1957 Chevrolet.

We stopped at the side of the road on the way back from Fusterlandia.  Perhaps this was the taxi we were in, I don’t remember.

Dickey seat or rumble seat, 1930 Model A Ford Roadster (also next three images).

A bit later we stopped just out of Havana beside a river and lots of trees, where a couple of vintage cars were parked.  Perhaps there was a rally nearby.
