Travel and Photography: Off the Charts

Overview

'On assignment in Havana, Cuba, I heard music. It was across the street and far away. I couldn't track down the source. As I got closer, the echo was bouncing off the tall buildings. It was amazing. Running back and forth I eventually got someone's attention. He led me on a dead run into one of Old Havana's famous condemned historical landmarks. I thought it was abandoned. Upon entering the lobby, I found it totally dark in the middle of the day. No light at all. My "guide” ran up the stairs with me in close pursuit. The circular staircase wound

Overview

'On assignment in Havana, Cuba, I heard music. It was across the street and far away. I couldn't track down the source. As I got closer, the echo was bouncing off the tall buildings. It was amazing. Running back and forth I eventually got someone's attention. He led me on a dead run into one of Old Havana's famous condemned historical landmarks. I thought it was abandoned. Upon entering the lobby, I found it totally dark in the middle of the day. No light at all. My "guide” ran up the stairs with me in close pursuit. The circular staircase wound round and round. But soon I hit something. Hard. Since it was so black I had no idea the staircase was full of people. I couldn't see a thing. I panicked. But I always carry a small flashlight on my key chain. I was able to stumble safely the several flights up to the band rehearsing on the top floor. Great photographs.'
