[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
When the evenings falls, life in cuba disappears from the streets. Behind the front door, in local cafe's and some restaurant people sit together and have a drink if they can afford it. So the streets are empty and an old man takes a walk to see if there is another old man or woman to have a chat ..

Prachtige sfeerfoto van Cuba. Een beetje verlaten straat, karige verlichting ,... Hard leven daar.
In de verte een oldtimer. Ik hou erg van dat land.

Hi Frans,
Your picture conveys a strange mood : nobody in the streets except for that man who seems to wait for something -someone?-
in a rather anxious way.

Nice atmosphere. Cold mood...

Helloooo Frans!
Wow, I must say I love the yellow/golden tone in this one!
Not a portrait this time...
Real feeling of lonesomeness, but also really warm (maybe because of the colours).
Well caught!

Hi Frans,
Beautiful night shot with great light !!!
Such a desert street with that lonely man at the corner, he seems to be lost, not knowing where he will go now ...
Very moody and sad at the same time.

belle composition nocturne, jolie lumière
bonne atmosphére


Very nice night scene from Cuba. I love the golden colours.

you have captured loneliness on film, and the moment.this is street photography at its best. cartier bresson would like this one for sure.

cheers, mark
