I just returned from a wonderful trip to Havana, Cuba with my wife for a special 5 days. I’ve been using the Leica M240 with a 50mm Summilux for a short time but this was the first real test of this combo. I used a couple of the film packs (1 and 2), from VSCO and I think they are exceptionally good. I especially like the silver gelatin feel of the Ilford tri x 400 ++.
I took a lot of images of cuban life, architecture, cars etc but was continually drawn to the faces and people on the street.
My wife and I both agreed that we have never felt safer in any city in the world. The approachability and friendliness are a credit to the Cuban people. People are just enjoying there lives in a rewarding and open way. It’s a fantastic place to visit as a photographer before the expected changes take place politically.
Hope you like the shots,
