Crush – Denver

Saturday night was another meetup with the Denver Nightcrawlers to experience and shoot the Crush  experience in RiNo. The mission of Crush, as stated on their FB page is:

“CRUSH celebrates art, urban beautification, creativity, and culture by enriching the community through an arts festival like no other. Centered on empowering artists’ creativity, CRUSH is committed to reflecting and diversifying the urban landscape and the unique voice of the community.”

What amazes me is the scale and free form used by these artists for their murals. Take a look at some of what I saw that night.

Cuba Experience

La Habana Vieja

La Habana Vieja is the city-center (downtown) and one of the 15 municipalities (or boroughs) forming Havana, Cuba. It has the second highest population density in the city and contains the core of the original city of Havana. The positions of the original Havana city walls are the modern boundaries of Old Havana. (Source: Wikipedia).

I spent about 5 days in this area with Soul Road Trips this past March. What a trip! We also spent some time in the Viñales Valley, but that will be a separate post. Nine photographers led by 2 experienced Cuban travelers with knowledge of the city and its people helped make for an interesting trip. Thanks Jeff and Gary!

This will be a evolving post as more processed images are added and story lines are fleshed out. Enjoy!
