Havana, Lost in Time

Posted on December 10, 2015

Lost in Time

Walking through Havana was a surreal experience. The city is filled with a certain sense of energy that is very difficult to describe.  I walked and walked endlessly throughout the streets of La Havana and the colors, the contrast, the highlights, the clothing of the people, the cars, in fact just about everything, is worthy of being photographed in the city. The entire city seems to be painted with slide film reminiscent of Kodachrome hence the processing with Classic Chrome.

Classic Chrome feels like Kodachrome

What does that mean? What does Kodachrome feel like? It’s tough to explain. But Steve McCurry put it very well when he famously said that Kodachrome (the film) had, “more poetry in it, a softness, an elegance.”

 

Here’s a small sampling of some images I’ll continue to share in this blog.

Veuve Clicquot and Proscuitto at Cibo’s

Posted on October 4, 2014

These are a few shots from my Thursday happy hour outing at Cibo’s in Coral Gables. If you’re down in Miami, then cruise on by to Coral Gables, specifically Miracle Mile. Cibo’s wine selection is amazing and I wholeheartedly recommend it. I had a great time and their proscuitto is delicious and Veuve Clicquot is, well, a party in your mouth ― its my favorite.
