    Reported by:

    During a recent visit to Cuba, I encountered this bold woman on the street while strolling around Old Havana. Something about her just struck me, like her eyes held a million stories. Not having any cash on me, I borrowed some change from a friend and approached the woman with it, asking to take her photograph. She nodded and posed like a boss, stogie and all.

    This is a fun portrait right here. The yellow wall just pops right off my screen and it's such a great idea to have as a background. I love the expression she is giving you and cigar prop is such a great detail!
