Camera Hanging Out Havana Taxis: Pictures of Blur and Motion

Journeys, Featured

 

 

Growth, in some curious way, I suspect, depends on being always in motion just a little bit, one way or another.

— Norman Mailer

As I make my plans for the next trip to Havana in June, I looked through my photographs from November. These particular photos are all motion and blur from hanging my head out the taxi window. I was trying to absorb as much as I could of this area of the world I have come to love so much. What an interesting stage.

So, Happy New Year and here is a bit of randomness and silliness as we explore Havana. I know so many of you are planning your trip there soon; call me if you have any questions at all.

    Wow, Nan. You’re getting so good at the hanging out the window shot! So much practice you’ve had. These are very impressionistic. I love the rainy ones. You really capture a mood. The moment. And those colors! Thanks for sharing. xoxo, –steffie

    • Thanks so much. Love your comments and observations. I think I will try this in NYC 🙂

  • Tara Crowley

    Love the blur! Captures the ‘on the go’ so prevalent in Cuba.

    • Hi Tara, thanks for reading and commenting. I just love hanging out the taxi and absorbing, so hard to say goodbye to Havana each time. Hope you visit again! Would love to have a photo walk with you.

      • Tara Crowley

        yes, that would be grand!

  • Nancy

    Havana! Great job, Moon! What an original idea. I swear you can find beauty better than a sluth can find a murderer.

  • Katie Settel

    Love love love these! The very first one killed me (in a great way) and the rest just took me there. Well done and thanks for sharing.

    Great shots Nancy! Love the blur effect. The colors are amazing as always 😉 One day we will have to take a family trip to Cuba!

    All 36 are wonderful, you should make a collage of all of these. It really gives you the flavor of Havana, so special it is. I would have never thought of doing this, can’t wait to return in June.

    Of course, the pink converting in the rain is my favorite, since I was riding in the back seat!
