Lights on Obispo Street

This is our entry in Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Lights.

This photo was taken on Obispo Street in Old Havana, Cuba. Dating from 1519, this street is only four years younger than Havana itself. Leading straight to Plaza de Armas, it is lined with shops, hotels, and government buildings.  Extremely photogenic at any time of day or night, it is popular with locals and tourists.

 

This photo was taken on May 12, 2016. It was converted to black and white using Silver Efx Pro. A little grain was added to increase the moodiness. Specs are:

Olympus TG-4, ISO 800, f/3.4, 1/13 sec, 9.6 mm

  1. The composition of this image is really well done–street to sky, framed by the sidewalks. I feel drawn into the space, walking with the tourists…and the B&W with grain adds to the nostalgic quality of the shot. Lovely!
