Havana, Cuba. There are many women dressed in costume, holding cigars. They pose for photos, asking the tourists for a dollar. This particular lady appeared lost in thought, she looked so sad. She did not notice me until after I had taken the picture.

    Oh, great shot! She is the lady who takes 1 dollar for each shot, isn’t she??? :-)

  • Thanks…She is! She didn’t see me until after I had taken the picture though!

    At first I thought the pic was funny, but then I noticed her sadness. What a grotesque world we’re livin in. Great story-telling image.
