I returned late last night from my Photographic Excursion and now that I am back I can tell you a little about the trip. I didn't want to say anything before because... well, I didn't need the extra attention before going. The location? Cuba. Yes, it is still a closed country. So, how did I get to go? I was asked by my church (First Baptist of Homestead) to go and photographically record the work the church is doing there.
Disclaimer: For the safety of the missionaries there I will not show any photographs of them, their families, or the missions work on this blog or my main website.
While there I had more than a little bit of an opportunity to photograph the rural areas of Cuba and I visited Havana on my last day. I am not known as a street photographer. In fact, I had never done street photography until now.
I have so many mixed emotions about my trip. What I can tell you is that the Cuban government is truly doing their people a disservice (understatement). I can also tell you that the people I came in contact with were intelligent, kind, and loving people who cherish their families.
