Older man smoking a cigar in doorway Trinidad Cuba

Old man on the streets of Trinidad posing for tourists to have photographs taken with him for tips

An older man sitting on a doorstep smoking a cigar in Trinidad is a typical street or travel image from Cuba. Yes, a man smoking a cigar in Cuba is as common as a cigar, but I still like the expression or gesture of this individual.  The old man is wearing a fedora hat and sitting a the doorstep of one of the shops in Trinidad, Cuba.

The Cuban gentleman was not a random individual that I photograph in the many streets of the world where I travel. In Cuba, there are many of these individuals that sit there all day, posing for tourists. I talked to him briefly – or at him as he did not respond – but he did understand enough English to assist in my posing him in an interesting photographic composition. I wanted the expression on his face. I feel that I captured nicely is this photograph.
