Photographer's Note

I thought if carried on the way I started yesterday things could get a bit boring, so I decided to make another montage. Tat also gave me the chance to pick few for interest, rather than compo, sake. I've also broken my promise from Friday, and scanned a few taken with the Nikon AF600, so these are from two trips, also February 2002.

As I wrote to Maciek some time ago, the cars in Cuba are more or less in three groups. US cars from before 1959 (the largest group) eastern block (well come to think of it, just Russian) cars from '59 to '91 (the next most common) and a selection of modern cars of all sorts that are mainly government owned in some capacity (including many hire cars, only state car hire companies) or owned by the many foriegners who now live and work there. The only exception to this general rule is a selection of French cars from the '60s that must have been left over after the French engineers finished building the tunnel at the mouth of Havana harbour.

Of particular interest in, to me, in this collection is the green fiat (top right) I think a '60s European car, not from France. The early '60s Volga, far left of te secod frame down on the left, which had been restored to perfection, as had the red UK Ford Zephyr, third down on the right (though to non standard colour and modern wheels). The Lada stretched limo, third down on the left, is quite a common sight.
