Havana: Malecon and Hotel Nacional During a Stormy Day

Havana: Malecon and Hotel Nacional at Dusk

Havana: Malecon and Morro on a Sunny Day

Nearly the same angle and focal length as the Malecon and Morro below. Probably not the same people. Shot taken with Canon A-1 with Soligor 35-70 mm.

Havana: Malecon and Morro at Night

Night shot: Malecon in Havana looking east towards the Morro. Taken with Canon A-1 and Soligor 35-70 mm lens. I have a print in 60×40 cm – very nice… You want one? Send me a mail.

Havana by Night

Malecon in Havanna by night, long time (39 s) exposure

This is actually a panorama of two long exposure (30 s) shots with my Canon A-1, 200 ISO film, and *I think* at 35 mm with my Soligor lens. The original photos are somewhat unspectacular and unevenly lighted, so it did not make any sense to have them enlarged. After scanning them I was able to stitch them together and found that the city smog was illuminated beautifully. As the warm city air above the buildings towards the Monumento a José Martí on the left cools off above the sea on the right, the fog is sinking to the sea surface.
