You cannot beg here


Taken at the Plaza de la Catedral, one of the most beautifully maintained squares in the city, and just outside the Catedral de San Cristóbal de La Habana. I really felt for this poor old woman. Security took her away from here.

A strong image of this moment of confrontation. How ironic that it took place in front of a cathedral which is maintained by a regime that does not recognize religion. "V"

outstanding portrayal of a disturbing moment...the woman looks so fragile, and the officer so stern..

This image tell a story, for sure. It is sad, but not much different from here in the US. Well done. V.
