[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Shops are empty, good quality clothing - shoes - electrical equipment etc only available in dollar shop.
How do you get the dollars if you earn only a few dollars a month for work. Life in Cuba is different from many places in the world, very different ..
He made his autoped from left over wood, found somewhere, and a 2 big bearings from a car ..
and went fast through the streets

Hi Frans,
Nice compo and beautiful colours for these two boys playing in the streets of La Habana.
Meaningful message !

Woah, he must be really skilled!!
I wish I wasn't dependant on Bill Gates and others for my leisure time...
Never been to Cuba, but I can feel the atmosphere of it just by looking at these two guys on the street!
Goody portrait again!

Hello Frans

Nice shot,well seen and composed.I made a WS,a B&W version.I think fit good to this kind of photography.Hope you like it.Thank you.


Hi Frans, when we were young, we did the same thing for lack of cash, we'd cut wood up and 'make' a skateboard using old skates. Or we'd buy the cheaper 'key' skates which attached to your own shoe with a gripper and then you tightened the key. Those were the years! TFS. It's a great memory stimulator.

Mooi en intensief; roept van alles op; en de jongens zijn echt jongens.
Mij valt op dat je de foto boven en onder niet goed rechttrekt.
Maar dat is beetje tik van mij. Verscherping van de jongers zou ook nog kunnen.

Great motive and compo, fine realization.

Very interesting to see the autoped that he made. I like this street scene with the two boys. Well done on the composition. I also have been to Cuba and I loved it there.

sympa, cette image !
