Cuba ~textures and trains

Cuba ~ old train yard

Cuba ~ old train yard
These photos are from an old train collection, right near the Capitol Building in Havana, just a few blocks from our hotel. They are mostly trains used to transport sugar cane. (That business is pretty much done now. Used to be that Cuba  sold the the Soviet Union 85% of their exports...then, the fall of the Soviet Union, in the mid 90s ended all that.)

I just love all the layered textures.........

If I were a abstract painter, or fiber artist, Deidre Adams, I'd know just how to use these photos for inspiration.

  5. Jane, these are just fantastic pictures. Thanks for sharing them. I've wanted to go to Cuba for a very long time after seeing so many great photographs from there, and listening to a lot of the traditional music. What a great experience!

    And by the way, muchas gracias for the shoutout!
