you always manage to tell a story Nicole…even without words
Thanks Jo! So glad you enjoy! 🙂
Beautiful photo Nicole; nevertheless, there is a little detail which steal all my attention, distracting me from the rest of the image: Do you have any idea what that little human form (a man, I guess), stuck to the door, right next to the flower, means or why is there?!
This is why I LOVE blogging! A lot of times readers notice something I fail to see on my own photos! I looked at the photo again and see what you mean! I am betting it is a deity! The Afro-Cuban culture practices a form of religion known as Santeria which involves using deities and they disgusted their religion with Catholism when the Spaniards tried to force them to convert. Great question!
That’s it!, surely you’re right (but, who? what for? now, I’m intrigued!). Thanks for your reply Nicole.
I’m just as intrigued as you! I’m reading another great book on Cuba now and they are talking a bit about the Santeria religion. Let’s see if I can find out!
They don’t seem so harried there as we are.
Yes in these pictures however in Cuba lines are insane. Cubans can wait hours for everything and it is part of daily life. That would get frustrating.
Indeed it would.
So much about Cuba reminds me of my time in Cartagena. I think it’s the same sort of magic. 🙂
I bet they are similar. Full of magic indeed!
