Street scene from Santiago de Cuba with Cuban flag in the background. Santiago de Cuba is renowned for it’s colonial architecture dating back to the 16th Century, and also as the birthplace of the Cuban revolution. A Cuban man wearing a peaked cap is walking across the street in the foreground. 2 women walk past each other in different directions on the right hand side. One woman is wearing an outfit of bright blue vertical stripes. This is much brighter than the more muted beige and white tones of the woman she has passed.
The buildings on either side of the street rise up the hill in strong vertical lines in a variety of contrasting tones, and washes. Also in the foreground a power pole rises towards the sky. Eventually their wires spread out in all different directions, as they contrast against the blue sky. The clouds sit behind the buildings at the top of the hill. A street sign on the left side of the picture provides a static icon in a circle. A triangular sign on the right is directly opposite.
