Havana Kid

Havana Kid

The Havana Kid came at me from behind. I was crouched to take a photo of the building that appears behind him. But he came up from behind then planted himself directly in front of me. So I figured I would take his photo instead of the building. At some point his older sister also came out to hang out, but she quickly stepped to the side.

Image was converted to black and white using Macphun’s Tonality CK. Some editing was done in photoshop to soften the sharp edges of the building, then final tweaks were done in Lightroom.

Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at Pixelbip.com and writing about my experiences at EarthToKeir.com
