  1. Beautiful photos once again, Ron. I especially love the first one. 🙂

    1. Thank you Tina. It was surreptitious. I just happened to turn around and there we all were!

  2. Great ideas for shots – the two together tell a story, and you definitely fulfilled the essence of the background challenge.

    1. Thanks Carol. BTW, Cuba is fabulous for photographers. You should go!

  3. Great pics for the challenge, Ron. That first one is just amazing.

    1. Thank you. Doesn’t compare to your chef’s apron. 🙂

  4. Love both! I visited Cuba a few years ago loved being reminded of it with these photos.

    1. Thanks. I hope you enjoyed Cuba as much as we did.

  5. To be somewhere where ” No Starbucks, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Target, Walmart, etc” can be found sounds truly amazing. Somewhere that eats fresh and local and supports the local economy.

    1. That is Cuba for sure, but, of course, there is a downside. Cubans don’t have the freedom they would like and deserve to have and lack the variety of goods and services. Nonetheless, Cubans have a wonderful spirit.
