  1. Ssssh! It’s me again ­čÖé I was just about to leave the Reader but I love this!

  2. Looks very peaceful and silent indeed, and the person at the back would qualify this for your ‘One’ series too. I can also see that Spanish architectural connection, and would be happy to believe it was taken in Spain, if you hadn’t said otherwise.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  3. I like the way the curved archway frames the square geometry of the background.

  4. First , I love the entire atmosphere showed in this photo…
    Noticed the Spanish influence , diluted with the Caribbean way of living….
    Splendid capture!

  5. very nice Sue. I thought Spain at first, but these are true Cuban colours.
    Do you know where?

    Oh yes, I recognize the building. You did a wonderful job of composing this photo. Don’t you think you need to return with your current camera. Wouldn’t it be fun to be there together?

      i would love to return, but not sure my health is up to it…. Back then I drove 600 miles across Cuba, couldn’t do that now.

        I don’t know what problems you would need to overcome, but the company we used provides a driver and tour guide for two people doing what you want to do, at the speed you want to go. We had six people so we had two taxis with two drivers and one tour guide. Not as much flexibility when traveling with that many – but still we were able to split up when I couldn’t handle an activity that others wanted to do.

        Well, for a start I would likely be on my own…Cuba is a long way, and expensive! Which company did you use, Pat?

        Here is a link to the web site of Positive Things and Destinations. We were also looking at tours like National Geographic and Globus but they cost more. But you would need a travel companion. https://positivedestinations.com/about/

        There’s the rub…

  7. Lovely peaceful scene, Sue. The colours are real eye-candy. ­čÖé

  8. Lovely composition. I went through a stage of painting arches a few years back. This one tempts me.

  9. Beautifully framed, Sue.

  10. Lots of texture as well as the gorgeous colours!

  11. I vowed I was going to deal with my backlog with likes, but this is lovely enough to require a comment. An absolutely perfect through the archway shot and superb colours.

Over to you...
