The Streets of Trinidad
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|A typical scene of one of the streets of the UNESCO heritage listed city Trinidad. The old cars still drive the streets of many cities and most are now used as private taxis. A first sign of some slow changes in the communist ideas.|
Trinidad is largely car free as the old cobblestone roads need protection from cars. Buildings are all kept in pretty good condition which makes the city special and gives you that feeling of stepping back in time. Actually further back in time because Cuba makes you already go back in time.

A very good street capture atmosphere !
This looks like a 1958 Chevrolet, or thereabouts. Good sharpness and surprisingly good maintenance of the buildings. Communism, as we all know, is the perfect system ..... in Heaven but not on Earth. No one could ever make it work on Earth with their unrealistic aspirations. Marx, Engels, Mao, Stalin and Castro were about power and not about people and they all left millions dead in their wake. Yes, 1958 or thereabouts. Thank you for showing reality.
Hello Niek, a documentary type of shot, that does seem to take us back in time!
Very tidy and clean.
I like the presence of the people, who on the whole, seem to be taking no notice of you, adding to the appeal of the picture.
The presence of the people is animating the scene. The point of view is showing the details of the 1958 Chevrolet. Cuba is a good place to see old american cars. Have a nice day.
