    "Cuba Cool"

    In my quest to get images of barbers and their shops, at the request of my own barber, we found this cool guy while walking around Havana one evening. From the window outside I asked permission to come in and take a few images. He had this little space that was part of a larger shop. The rest of the shop was for women doing nails and hair. This image is much better in black and white than color!

    From my week tour of Cuba this past December.

    It has this amazingly rustic look to it. With the nicely taped up power cord plugged into the phone on the countertop :D

    Makes a pretty good portrait.

    There is just something about this Tex. It may be my favorite so far from your Cuba trip.
