The Capitol View

HAVANA, CUBA

A short distance from the grand "Capitolio Nacional Cuba" buildings, I found some wonderful old engines appearing to be under restoration, but unfortunately fenced off. The Capitol buildings are still visible. Another thing to mention is that there was so very little graffiti, this was the most I saw at any point.

Old buildings, trains and a car. Too bad the barrier is there, but striking and great story telling image none the less. ~V~

Someone had a dream to restore these old engines. Voted

It very often does pay to go around the back side of something grand. What a neat spot you found. That old engine is amazing as is this photo! V

Great composition with this perspective and layers of colors and material. Nicely ending with a reflection on the bottom and sky on the top. I like the vivid colors and clarity. "V"

top! I love how you frame, especially the car, leaving only what is necessary.
That is a skill ~V
