The Adriatic sea as a background and the “Sun mirror” in the foreground. Zadar, Croatia. June 20

Immediately an intensive negotiation process starts in my mind between the photographers ambition to achieve a good picture and my instinctive inhibition against sticking my camera under the noses of people I don’t know. The photographer wins the battle but a small sacrifice is needed…
I turn around, walk back and step into the hair salon asking.. can you cut my hair

There she sat in the car at the beach east of Havana.
I could not resist. Lots of tempting ingredients. The sun was low,
the girl was pretty and the car had all that pre revolutionary patina
that one need for a nice Cuban cliché.
-Do you mind a picture? I asked.
-No but you have to hurry up, my husband is coming back in a moment
and he is very jealous!
