Last Afternoon in Trinidad

June 12, 2014  •  9 Comments

On our last afternoon in Trinidad, some of the group went to the beach but I ended up going out to do some more photography.  Perhaps had I known how bitterly cold and snowy Toronto was going to be for the rest of the winter I might have reconsidered.   I really wanted to be in two places at the same time!   Apparently the beach was very nice and the everyone who went had a great time. I never did get to the beach except for one night for a few night shots.

I took a look in the interior of  this old car- it  didn't look too comfortable to me.

The kids were just too cute and many were nicely dressed!  Check out the sandals.

I found that there was so much to photograph in Cuba.  Between photographing people, cars, street scenes and the buildings it was almost too many choices.  I think that Cuba is a photographer's dream come true.

20140201_cuba_0233-220140201_cuba_0233-2 There were also lots of dogs to photograph.  Unfortunately some of them were street dogs.  I'm hoping this guy wasn't one of them.  It is actually hard to tell because I'm thinking (hoping) that some of the stray dogs actually had homes to go to at night.

Marsha, I just came across this blog today, Sept. 17! The photos are almost all very interesting . The kids are adorable and there are other photos, abstract, that have wonderful colors and shapes. I wished i'd been with you instead of at the beach - even though it was fun.

Awesome pics! Love all the colours. The pic of the old man with the cigar is outstanding! Love the little girl with the colourful dress and the yellow sandals. Enjoyed travelling to Cuba with you.
