New Year Roundup 2014

Another year has come and gone in a blink of an eye. So many things happened this year that its hard for me to even begin to recall all of them.

Photographyically speaking, it was a rather slow year for me. I looked back at some of the post from this year and selected my favorite. Again, I must say that the Fujifilm X-series never cease to amaze me. I had the opportunity to shoot some projects full frame (un posted here though) and I can say the differences between Fujifilm X-series and full sensor camera are definitely reducing more and more.

Cuba Diary # 2

Havana Club (7 years) in hand (its legal to walk and drink on the streets of Cuba) and cruising the streets of La Habana. Life is good as the commercial says.

As I did my thing through the streets I couldn’t help but think of the stark contrast between my home and my in-law’s but for some reason the differences disappear as you meet the people on the streets and conversations are started over Mojitos, Daiquiris, and Bucanero.

Cuba Diary #1

Time flew, it was a short flight of only 40 minutes from Miami and in a blink of an eye we arrived in Boyero, Cuba (location of the Jose Marti Airport). From here we took a cab to La Habana, Cuba’s capital city, and the adventures began.

At first, it was a huge culture shock but then I quickly realized just how special La Habana really is. La Habana is a beautiful city trapped in a time capsule but nonetheless it exudes a unique beauty that in my opinion can only be appreciated with your own eyes. Its for sure a one of the “must see” cities in the world.

Rafa Marquez joins the Collective

It is with great pleasure that I announce the latest member of the Origami Collective ― Rafa Marquez. Rafa hails from Spain and has been shooting shooting the X-Pro 1 for a few years already and I believe he’s become one with his camera, but don’t let me tell you about it, head over to his profile to admire his great documentary and urban work.

Cuba Bound

An island unknown to many but rich with a filled history. Hatuey, the Dominican indian chieftain, traveled to Cuba to warn the people of the atrocities the Spaniards had committed in Dominican Republic and that they were on the way to Cuba as well.

Well fast forward a few centuries and here we are with Cuba, a country rich with history, birthplace of the Mojito and home to the world famous Cohiba and Partagas cigars and to top it off, some of the most beautiful beaches and people in the world and still not a lot people know it.
