Travel Theme: Colours (amidst the decay)…

Ailsa has asked us to show our take on Colours for this week’s Travel Theme. Amidst the decay of Havana, I spotted some colour.

The cars below were shone up for the tourists:

and these girls were parading for the tourists, complete with Cuban cigars:

And amidst the seriously crumbling, rather gloomy buildings of downtown Havana, there was still colour to be found, as in this flower market:

  1. I love those cars! Nice splashes of colour indeed, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. Brilliant! The spirit of Cuba is captured in these shots Sue.

    These cars are so cool! 🙂 Such a colorful place. Thank you for taking us there, Sue!

  4. Great responses to the theme, Sue. I imagine as much of the city is drab, these colorful touches make a big difference to attitudes.

  5. 🙂 The cars are fabulous; lovely touches of colour to everyday life.

  6. What a dilemma. Brightness in the middle of decay. But your photos are wonderful as always. Your tag “gloomy” seems to contradict the images, but acknowledges the dilemma.

  7. What a wonderful post…perfect for the theme!

  8. Wonderful. Decay and colours go well together. And I love the cars, though I know there maybe will be an end to them now when the country is changing…

    I never was much into cars but those are real beauties.

  10. This is how I imagine Havanna. Loads of colours on/in everything… thanks for sharing.

  11. This post is a burst of visual joy!

  12. Hi! Love your photos. I was in Havana last month and was surprised at how many gloomy buildings there were. That is a good word for it. And I never saw the cigar girls. Bummer.
