We uploaded an albums of frames from the shoot we did in the central part of Cuba around Camaguey.
Camaguey is a town that proudly displays the old wealth of Cuba. With impressive pedestrian areas and squares guarded by stores that even now, almost empty, hint of an old abundance, the city is a charm to explore with its intricate labyrinth of streets and alleys. The city squares are spectacular being filled day and night with youth checking their phones and chatting over Internet with friends. Plaza Agramonte, Plaza San Juan de Dios and Plaza del Carmen are just several of the city squares, all filled with art and hosing in the surrounding houses many art galleries, shops and studios of famous local artists.
We shot for a little bit in Ciego de Avilla, a town that offers some important connections to the northern set of islands in Cayo Coco and Cayo Guillermo.
From Ciego de Avilla I had to take a taxi, it’s no other transportation if you leave the Cuban central highway, and stopped for a short while on the golden fine sand and the green waters of Playa Pillar, in Cayo Guillermo described enthusiastically by Hemingway in its novel “Islands in the Stream”. The beauty is there, thou is not too much else to do except sitting in the sun and eating in the nearby restaurant.
