Habana Vieja 2012

Both photographs were taken during one of my solo walkabouts around Old Havana. I'm fascinated by the myriad architectural styles. My first trip here in 2003, I was accompanied by an architect, and he described in detail what each one was. I wish I could remember what he told me! The top is a more formal composition with symmetry, vertical verticals and horizontal horizontals. I also waited for a person to walk into the frame. The bottom photo is more of a "street" shot, though I don't really like that categorization. Trying to use words to describe photography, music, or any other art form is essentially a futile exercise, but that doesn't stop people from trying. It's like Dancing to Sculpture!
