Thursday’s Special: Waiting

A bit later than Thursday, admitted, but is it worth waiting for?!!

Here are a couple of recent images on the theme, seen in Havana:

Waiting in the food queue

Waiting for more customers?

  2. If I may .. .there is nothing basic about these shots! Was it worth the wait? Absolutely 🙂 (you know of course that you have a week available). Lovely to see old barber’s still operating. These are getting so scarce in other countries. I love the first one too, Sue. It has a bit of picture book feel. Really lovely. Have a happy Easter! (I am challenging on Easter Day too in case you wonder)

  3. I might give the barber shop a miss if I needed a trim, but the photo worked really well.
    Were they waiting for a specific foodstuff, I wonder?
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Awesome captures. The ”feel” is fabulous.

  5. You’ve captured so much of the body language of waiting, and you’ve also captured the dark side of Cuban beauty-in-decay with the food queue. What was it like revisiting Cuba?

    • Sue

      The dark side of Cuban Beauty in Decay, indeed, Meg. Glad you consider that I have captured the body language of waiting – I have more to come….
      Revisiting Cuba was both wonderful and sad. I do hope that in the years to come, that life may be improved for the people. I also wish I could stay there for much longer, and revisit Cienfuegos, Camaguey and Santiago….but I do feel my health is against this. So be glad that I briefly touched on the atmosphere of that place again.

  6. Both excellent images and capture that essence of waiting. I love the street scene.

  7. Definitely worth the wait! Lovely shots, Sue. And I’m so glad you got back there. I know what you mean about staying longer – I could easily spend a few weeks just in Havana.
    I think the food situation is getting worse at the moment. Us tourists are being fed well, and prices are going up because those dealing with tourists can afford them. So less choice for those outside the tourist trade.

  8. Sorry about the food queue but the shot is lovely, Sue.

  9. Perfect capture, Sue. Beautiful photos.

  10. Excellent! The first one looks like a watercolor, those colors are so soft. You must have a had a great time.

    • Sue

      Glad you like them, Lynn…I had a great time, but all too short. Happily, I got quite a number of photographs that I feel give the essence of the place

  11. Smashing photographs Sue!

    • Sue

      Thanks, Adrian! Glad you like them, good to see you here….how’s life?

      • Not too bad Sue, thank you. I’ve been very very tired, something you know about too I know. Sleeping up to 14 hours a day and not seeming to find time for too much else but I’ve been feeling a little better the last few days.
        I hope all is well with you.

      • Sue

        Pretty weary myself the last few weeks, post holiday-itis I think!

  12. The top image I found very romantic …. beautiful in all its pallor ( new word for me – google gave it to me) *smile
