Everyday life at Havana de Cuba, just a year ago…
“Proud colors” in Athens…
In 23 images!
Havana, is a city that has been almost untouched for the last 50 years. Amazing! Walking on its streets gives the impression that you are taking part in a movie set or a fairy tale.
Yes, there might be poverty all arround you, but Cuban people are proud, have very high self-esteem and also they have dignity. They are polite and happy and gave me the impression that, us in the so-called western world, are going after things that do not matter (of course this is something everyone decides for his own).
Please enjoy a colorful city that knows how to be alive(!):

Texola, Oklahoma, US, is a very attractive old town.
Because it is deserted…
Photographers always like deserted places, that witness the presence of people but without people being there…
Texola is very often a Ghost City, obviously because it has been deserted but not destroyed.
One of the famous sayings about Texola is written on one wall of the town saying:
“There’s no other place like this place anywhere near this place so this must be the place”
One of the images I took in Texola was this deserted old truck. It should have been there for a while as even trees have grown through it… I loved the colors of the metal, the paint that has been destroyed from the weather and time, but it seems as it still tries to keep up its profile against all odds…
Picture was taken in August 2008, during my trip to Route 66.
