Cuba Diversa

That moment after the rain...

I want to talk to you about this picture that is really important to me.


Somo time ago i was talking with a friend about photography and we were wondering "what we want to photograph next?" That idea was in my head for two weeks at least, and them one day, during a heavy raining i realize, "Now i want to shoot the peacefull moment that comes after the storm", so i went out the street during the calm and start taking photographs of the wet road, the leaves with water drops and so on, but nothing was pleasing me, so i stop, i was really bored and desapointed.
Almost one year after that, a friend call me for a fishing trip in ocasion of his birthday, as i love fishing a lot i took my rod and my camera(an old one i can take out without worries about been lost or break). 
We went to a place that is on one side off the Varadero higway, a canal at marina Chapelin, so in front of us there was a line of mangroose and the water was calm, was at night then i feel a joyfull peace inside then i took the shot.
That same night later at home when i saw the image i said "that´s it" that is the moment i want to capture, i also realize that you can find that anywehere not only after the storm.
The photo title is "present" for many reasons, the first one, my friend birthday, the importance of the mangroose for the enviroment and how is still standing within a resort area, i now is kind of silly but i also was thinking about a line in the "Kong-Fu Panda" movie:
"Today is a gift, and that is way we call it, present" says the turtle. Yes, i know...any way that phrase have a huge impact in the way i see life.
Sorry for the long text!!! Just wanted to share with you that photo and i was interpreting that moment of the life.
