Iglesia y Convento de la Merced

Iglesia y Convento de la Merced

One thing I notice about how I take photos. I always like them more after a month or so. I’m finally getting around to processing my Cuba images. When I left Cuba I felt that I didn’t get the kinds of images I imagined I would while there. But now with the perspective of time i’m starting to like the images I shot more and more. This church is the Iglesia y Convento de la Merced. Yes I had to look it up on Google maps because I never take enough notes when I shoot.

I would pass this church often as I walked to the harbour. From the outside it looks like most Havana buildings, run down and in need of attention. One day I decided to go in and instead of what I expected, this image is what I saw. It was quite dark so this shot was taken with a tripod at 1/40 of a second.

 

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
