    I've been going to Cuba for nearly 10 years now. And over the years I've brought back various bits and pieces of art that I thought was nice. On my first trip, as a present for my wife, I brought back a tiny bronze sculpture of a raised fist set in stone. I thought it looked very revolutionary, my wife just saw it as me giving her a fist. Though she saw the funny side. Later, I first met Jose Rey of Havaning.com when I met him to buy some of his pictures that I'd seen on Facebook. Even they didn't get past my wife. Then last March, I was trying to photograph the waves coming over the Malecon from the back of taxi and having the usual luck when trying to take pictures with an iphone from the back of a moving car. Results like this. Until I noticed something in one of them. This one. From that I did some cropping, the only Photoshop I did was remove the rear-view mirror "dimming lever" to get as wide a shot as I could. And I got this. My wife finally liked it. Since I had waited so long to get something "Cuban" on the wall, I decided to go large. I called up a photographer friend and was recommended a place called Inspirational Arts here in Dublin. Two guys, Ed and Jim there were fantastic to work with, after a bit of humming and haw-ing about the amount of noise in the shot. They got us up to have a look at some exposures and papers. And finally we got this out of it. 3 metres (10 feet) wide. It arrived Friday, I was away until Saturday night, hung it yesterday morning and here's the result. I'm very happy with it and my wife loves it. I suppose the point of the story is, when in Cuba get your camera out, you never know what you might get. Also I suppose, I'm always amazed at the amount of information an iphone camera (that was an iphone 6) can capture at that distance and with that amount of cropping, through a windscreen, from the darkened (tinted) back of a moving taxi.

    Out back with the pugs watching the Brewers! No coffee this afternoon, drank my daily allotment already, lol! Cohiba Medio Siglo TOR NOV 16, coming along nicely. Great draw and burn thus far, with many of the classic Cohiba notes, honey, hay, and some light cocoa so far. Go Crew!

    Can't fit into the pants that I'm supposed to wear at a friend's wedding later this month so. Breakfast today was a 1999 Du Prince and a piece of chocolate. No calories in cigars, right? No construction issues with these, beautiful old blend. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Grabbed a Du Prince first, but went with this instead. Don’t think this box is going to last long.

    So the latest. The Nordic/ Baltic Regionals just came this monday (launch date december 2017...) Rafael González North Star. A petit robusto. Nice looking box, not so nice sticker. Two RASCC that the swedish customs sniffed out and a HUHC. A 5 pack Jose L. Piedra and some singles. Skickat från min iPhone med Tapatalk

    I got home from work around 10:30 this morning, having been there since 6:30 yesterday morning, and started the day with this very nice CoRo from our host, followed by one of the best Monte 2s I have had in a while, also from our host. After a great 3 hour nap, I’m capping off the day with an Esplendido.
