Six Word Saturday: Nostalgic trip in photographs to Cienfuegos….

Feeling nostalgic today, here are a couple of images from the Teatro Tomas Terry in Cienfuegos, Cuba, over a decade ago. I had a cheap, very basic little digital camera with me at the time, and it was really dark inside this place…a very old fashioned theatre, boasting lovely wrought iron seats with wonderful hardwood arm rests. Alas we only had a tour, didn’t see a performance…

The ceiling was rather marvellous as I recall, But I didn’t get a photo of that!

Gloomy, rather ‘noisy’ view of the horseshoe shaped ampitheatre:

…and some of those seats:

  1. What a monument in such a creative country. Wish I’d seen this when we were there. Interesting photos.

  2. Nothing to do with the Terry-Thomas of gap-teeth fame?! (Not a serious suggestion, but it would be an outrageous notion!)

  3. Great to see Sue – I nearly put one up for you today, but wasn’t ready – I’ll post soon so you can compare with what you remember. Even with decent camera it was hard to get good shots inside.

      Brilliant, look forward to your post , Debs! And in the meantime, I have found a single image of Cienfuegos harbour….nothing to get excited about, but I’ll probably post it

  4. A place trapped in its own time indeed. Fascinating, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. At least you got to see it 🙂

  6. Gloomy? perhaps a little but that’s part of it’s charm.

  7. Stunning, Sue. So glad you have these to share.

  8. Would work for ambience too 🙂

  9. Those wonderful seats! There are times when a less-good camera captures a different feeling and makes good images, I think it did with these.

  10. I love the second shot especially. I think that Anna has made a valid point.

  12. Look at the leg room! Auditoriums of today don’t offer half this size for longer people. Nice pictures.
