I photographed this gentleman on one of his neighbor’s farms in the Vinales region of Cuba.  Talk about a face with character!



  1. You’re right about the character. And the colours are wonderful.

    • Thanks Lyle. I was blessed with warm morning light and a delighful model. 🙂

  2. Great portrait. His face has so much character that I immediately thought that I recognised him from our own travels around the Vinales valley. I must go back and take another look in my archives, though my memory may well be deceiving me. The light is exactly as I remember it. Super!

    • Thanks Dave.

      I’d love to find out whether you photographed this gentleman as well. He was a superb subject, and very accommodating.

      I was only in the Vinales area for two days, and would’ve gladly stayed longer. As you know, it’s beautiful scenery, nice people, and a leisurely pace that (for me at least) was a delightful change after congested Havana.

      The light was lovely, and remember the famous “golden hour” lasting at least two hours every morning and evening…

  3. You are right. There is a lot of character in that face. I love this picture. The colors are gorgeous, too!

    • Thanks Brinnmar. 🙂

      I’m very happy with this image. A wonderful subject in wonderful light. Hard to go wrong…
