SUNSET Cowboys in Trinidad / Cuba
THE cowboys of trinidad
are present all over the small picturesque city - looking out for tourists and job opportunities, offering guided horseback tours in the nearby Valle de los Ingenios.
Trinidad is a town in the province of Sancti Spíritus, central Cuba and has been a UNESCO World Heritage site since 1988 (as is Valle de los Ingenios).
Every evening when the sun sets and the night life begins, foreigners and locals come together at the Plaza Mayor and the Trinidad Terraces. The former looking for the "Cuban experience" and the latter trying to offer guided tours and other goodies.
While a stream of people and horses are headed towards the hillside city center, water used for the daily house washing ceremony is running downhill in this magnificent tourist hotspot and creates the perfect street photography opportunity.
STREET-PHOTOGRAPHY MEANS TO ME: ANTICIPATING A VANISHING MOMENT THAT CAPTURES YOUR AWARENESS; LIKE A GLANCE INTO THE NEAR FUTURE THAT MAY OR MAY NOT MANIFEST ITSELF IN AN IMAGE. IT IS LIKE MEDITATION AND GAMBLING AT THE SAME TIME.
