Cuban coffee bar

boy do I missed the warm weather in Cuba, where I visited 01.25.14 - 02.01.14.  This was taken at a coffee house in the country outside of Havana, it is called Maria's. Mine was spiked with a Cuban spirit that was not rum

Re: odd bunch

Nice set, I've always been a sucker for light shining through leaves.  I have to point out though, that it looks like on the first one, it all went 'pear shaped' on you!

3/4 lizard.

Three Fourths of a lizard.

Shoot with the E-5 and Sigma 105. Used  a E-Series DTC .

Zoomed in 1.5 X Re-Sized  to 4000 pixels wide . Re-sized to 1024.  ( Should just as well used the crop as I post detail in the Up-size down size.

Why 3/4 well its tail was behind a bit of junk.   Pity.

Re: 3/4 lizard.

nice he turned his face for the portrait, to think that I was in Cuba two weeks ago, where I did see some lizards, but no good shots,  Collin,  I have about 7 foot high piles of snow all around my house that I could send you, so you can experiment with snow flakes, with Jim's pointers on his thread

Ok Heres the trade. I keep the snow .

OK only for a few days. Its hot here really hot.

I took a egg and pricked the top with a egg pricker.  I left it on the decking  for 15 min and then had nice hard cooked egg. Its 42C / 108F  in the shade with a 15km wind that brings no relief and the same till Thursday. Birding has been on the back burner for a few weeks as the birds are not stupid and stay deep in the shade.

The air-cons are barely keeping up . The pool is great though but when you get out you are hot again. We have a window mount air-con in the lounge and all the dogs are lying in front of it with the people behind them.

The problem is we can only put on 2 units at a time other wise if you put the kettle on etc the earth leakage trips. My wife got a bit chatty about me not having it sorted out.
