A Fleeting Moment over Havana

A Fleeting Moment over Havana

Pigeons over Havana

The creative act lasts but a brief moment, a lightning instant of give-and-take, just long enough for you to level the camera and to trap the fleeting prey in your little box.
Henri Cartier-Bresson 

A flock of white pigeons passes ever so fleetingly over the darkening Havana sky as the sun prepares to bid farewell to another wondrous day.
