Lady Havana | Photograph by Lauren Breedlove (@girlwanderlist)
“During a recent visit to Cuba, I encountered this bold woman on the street while strolling around Old Havana. Something about her just struck me, like her eyes held a million stories,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Lauren Breedlove. “Not having any cash on me, I borrowed some change from a friend and approached the woman with it, asking to take her photograph. She nodded and posed like a boss, stogie and all.”
“Everything about this photo brings a smile to my face. Her pose, the pop of color thanks to the wall, and the pink on the flowers and her fan. Her eyes are very telling — I too feel like she's got a ton of stories to tell. Thanks for sharing this portrait, Lauren.” — @natgeoyourshot Community Manager Christina Shorter (@shortercr).
