Rooms with a view

Plaza Vieja originates from 1559 and over the centuries has witnessed executions, military exercises, festas and even bullfghts

I spent two weeks in Cuba and shot this picture on the Plaza Vieja in Old Havana after a whole day walking the streets. The scene was for me the quintessence of the Cuban way of life. You see people at all times of the day on their balconies, watching the sun rising in the morning, looking at the street, listening to music coming from below, having fun with the children or just enjoying the fresh air on a rocking chair when the sun starts to set. With that huge burst of colours that only Cuban people know how to deal with on the walls and windows, I immediately knew that I captured a very good representation of the unique Cuban spirit.
