Gift of Gab – Havana, Cuba

Gift of Gab – Havana, Cuba

This wonderful lady leans out her window and chats nonstop with me as I pass by, seemingly oblivious to the fact I do not understand a word she is saying. Warm and friendly and symbolic of Cuba herself.

    1. Thank you so much Katlin. I am happy you are enjoying the series.

  3. What a wonderful photo, Ron. How did you capture this woman? I’m so bad at this. Did you ask her permission or did you just capture her mid-sentence? I’d love to know your secrets!

    1. I was just passing by on the sidewalk and she started chatting with me. I raised my camera and she just kept chatting away. Permission was asked and granted by our actions she was pleased to be photographed and I was very happy with the shot.

      1. Good to hear about how pictures come about, Ron. I love to hear the stories; this seemed to work out happily for all parties, and for your viewers as well. ๐Ÿ™‚
