Thanks for the votes and the ribbon!

Shot on a street of Downtown Varadero (Cuba). Subject's amazing face and eyes did the job. "Hair light" is the sun and fill light is an sb-900 speedlight with a warm diffuser.

"Don Emilio" is my pick for a spanish nickname. "Don" is a prefix that denotes much respect and Emilio is a classic name.

After 52 years of "revolution" and radical socialism, this man, at his early 80's , must belong to the minority who has memories of a different Cuba, and maybe that is part of the story behind his eyes.
