When one of your best friends is a talented photographer, one can’t help but to team up and share adventures by capturing beautiful images. I had such a great time spending the day at Little Havana (Calle Ocho), in Miami with my friend, Juan Carlos. The smell of freshly baked pastelitos and coffee in the morning, yum! We spent the day with the locals playing dominos, & of course eating pastelitos & drinking coladas (Cuban coffee). Every one was so friendly & Cuba Ocho Museum is a definite must see! It is always nice visiting my home town, this shoot was very special to me because my background is Cuban & being surrounded by the Cuban American culture gets me all warm & fuzzy inside. Living in California now always has me missing those yummy Cuban pastries and Coladas. I have never been to Cuba but that is definitely on my list of adventures. For now a day spent in Calle Ocho will do just fine.
