These are outstanding photos - not only owing to the interesting subjects, but they are well composed and beautifully processed. A time warp, indeed.

Thanks Jer. I could've walked the streets of Havana for weeks just staring these things. The scenery and atmosphere on streets were surreal...

Amazing shots. Great detail and colors. Looks like they came right out of a movie.

Heavy metal indeed. It was amazing how many of those old-timers were still in perfect condition in there...

Down in Havana they don't get the road salt we get up here. Cars last forever down there

Me too, Havana is still on my to do list and your images may have moved it up a couple of places on the list.

NatGeo did an article on Havana recently, and these pictures could have fit right in. Nicely done.

The hubcaps on that first car look funny.

I sure hope so! Cuba is amazing place and definitely in top 3 among my travel experiences. And not just Havana, the whole country is really something special. My friends visited Cuba 10 years ago and based on our discussions the country is definitely changing fast. There's a lot more tourists than 10 years ago and unfortunately that has it's side affects. The authentic Cuba is still there, but not necessary for very long. So go before it's too late.
