Yo Te Lo Pido!


To understand what do I mean by the title of this posting, you'll have to listen to "Amores," where Midiala Rosales treats you (in her own words) to "a compilation of classic songs combined with new rhythms."
"What I wanted to do," says Midiala on the press release announcing that her music is now available in websites like iTunes.com, "was to rescue these beautiful old melodies with such gorgeous lyrics and present them in contemporary arrangements, with a mixture of styles and rhythms ... I wanted an album that sounded pretty much like Miami."
She does have a great voice and "Ódiame" —included on the album whose cover is above— is to my rather non-professional ear an outstanding effort.

A Golden Evening-iii




Getting the right shot at sunset on this specific site has proven to be elusive. There have been more than a couple of evenings where I've gotten there just a few seconds after the light was the right one. For now, this is my latest effort. The wide, slightly cropped shot, and a narrower view. Hope you like it.

For Your Eyes Only


'Mirroring Nature' is the title of the painting depicted above, which I have borrowed (without asking for anybody's permission) to include here. All that to justify my invitation for you to read what Jesús Rosado has to say about it and its author, Rafael López Ramos.
Go here: http://www.cubaencuentro.com/es/cultura/articulos/autos-cromos-y-otras-vitrinas-217099 to enjoy both the critic and the pix.

A Golden Evening-ii


These were taken just eight minutes apart on Saturday! Kind of like them a lot!

A Day At The Races

videoOK, for the record, Dario Franchitti won the 2009 IndyCar race at the Homestead-Miami Speedway on Saturday.
The video is my "I-was-there" proof. Did nothing but enjoy the race, the sun, and the views.

A Golden Evening-i











Having tried my hand at capturing a sunset, and not precisely with a professional camara (not that I fashion myself as a professional photog) I thought that it might be a good idea to picture another one. So, here you go, enjoy them! If I can find a better frame to shoot from, I will.

A Golden Evening




There it is, the cropped version of this one pix I shot last evening on the way home! Those of you who have seen the original know that the setting is definitely less than ideal!
But it's such a beautiful sunset that it certainly makes you want to stop, get your camera out and snap a pix!

I did!
