I have never been to Cuba but I believe that Valpriaso, Chile is a lot like Cuba...maybe prettier. This place is painted up like easter and has more award winning art painted on walls and doors than Harlem. The reason I think Cuba is a lot like this place is that when you walk the streets it is like time was frozen several decades ago. Everything looks old except for the pastel colors that have been used to paint the houses.
Talk about a photographers paradise. The deed restrictions are light which leads to some pretty funky cars sitting on the streets. This one was a work of art that no one had driven for years.
On a personal note, I am headed to Hawaii to add to the portfolio. You may not see an official blog post until I return. Another way to keep up is on my Facebook page. Are you a fan yet? If not, click here to check it out and then like it!
