Shot Of The Day

Red Flower

Reaching

The Cuban people are amazingly resilient. Always reaching beyond their circumstances. Beyond their means. Beyond….. whatever. This flower was growing out of rocky soil with concrete against a dilapidated building. I asked a man in Pinar del Rio, “How can you show me the Cuban people?” He thought for only a few seconds and then pointed to this flower growing out of nothing. “Look at that flower and you will see my people.”
