Sunset on the Malecón

In my last post I introduced you to Havana’s Malecón, the world’s longest sofa.

On our walk along the walled path we were serenaded by this guy playing his trumpet.

A little further along this line fisher was trying his best to catch a fish or two.

This was my final image from that evening; looking towards Plaza de la Dignidad, which happens to be right opposite the US Embassy.

Havana’s evocative Malecón

On my list of must-visit places for our trip to Havana was the Malecón; the 7km long road going alongside Havana’s waterfront. Here you will find families going for a leisurely walk, lovers meeting for a date, friends debating the latest issues, musicians playing their instruments, street sellers hoping for a sale, fishermen trying to make a catch, and tourists with their cameras trying to capture it all. The Malecón has been dubbed “the world’s longest sofa”, and sure enough, it was exactly what we found, people sitting on the wall and enjoying the evening.

The City’s Historian Office has given special status to 14 blocks of buildings on the Malecón, in order to stop the rot the buildings have experienced over time thanks to the corrosive effects of the ocean. There are days when the road is closed to cars due to the crashing waves and you are able to walk down the middle of the empty thoroughfare and still get very wet.

Every Havana travel guide tells you to visit at sunset, so that is exactly what we did.

Saturday dreams

As the snow is very slowly melting I find myself drawn to this photo from last years trip to the Dominican Republic. The sunsets on the Bavaro Beach are just stunning and we were treated to quite a few during our week there.

London at Night

As I am going through some more of my London photos I found these night shots.

London at night is just wonderful and provides for so many great photo opportunities. We were very fortunate that our AirBnB rental for the week in May had a great view out to The Shard. However, my most favourite building to shoot at night is the Tower of London. Unfortunately, I have not had time to work on those shots yet; something for another post further down the road I think. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these night shots.

Sunsets are amazing

Another shot from our recent Caribbean vacation, this time a sunset shot. Sunsets, and sunrises, are amazing, no matter where in the world you are! They are always worth sticking around for.

Escape to my happy place

I was going to post something completely different today, but the day did not turn out to be the way I had planned.

It turned out to be a very sad day today in work and so I needed to escape to my happy place tonight: sunrises and sunsets. So instead of my planned post, here is a sunset from our stay in the Cognac region in France last year.

I look at this and am thankful that I am able to enjoy the sight of sunsets and sunrises.
