Street Life in Old Havana

Havana is a phenomenal place for street photography. The once elegant mansions in various states of decay and renovation, the colorful people and attire, and the never-ending photo opportunities could leave you snapping shots all day long.

In fact, there are few places (besides Paris and Antigua, Guatemala) that I’ve found so incredibly photogenic as I did in Old Havana. I could have spent days there just walking the winding streets and taking pictures of every day life. To catch of glimpse of the colors, sounds and feel of Old Havana, check out this collection of street shots below. I hope you enjoy!

    • Yes it is! Usually I ask before taking a picture but in cases when it is
      Part of the street or scenery I take photos from a distance and zoom
      In at home when editing if I see a person in a photo.

  8. So much easier to live life on the streets in a warm climate, Nicole! :) Love that first shot of the washing, and the two old ladies sitting on the step soon after it. One of them has the nicest, contented face.

  9. I was eagerly looking forward to this post because I am in the states and I have FAST internet! lol I think it’s the second photo…the guy lighting the cigarette has Obama’s eyes. Don’t you think he kind of looks like a young Obama? And those hats…those lovely flowered hats. Fantastic photos, Nicole.

    These are lovely pictures! Just a question… do you ask people’s permission before you take a picture, or do you ask after you’ve taken it? Or do you just do it quietly and not ask at all?:) I’ve been in South America for 4 months and I felt very awkward taking pictures when people were close in shot. What’s your secret?
    Thanks:)
    You can see my South America pictures on my blog! http://itsgingefringe.wordpress.com/

    • Thanks! If it is a close up shot then I ask. However, some of the street shots I take from a distance and then edit the photos at home cropping out a lot and zooming in on the people. That way I’m not just rudely taking photos of people! But yes it is always good to ask before taking. I will check out your blog too. I love South America!
