Camaguey, CUBA… a Happy Recovery!


Hey Folks,

this collection of pictures from my hometown in Cuba, Camaguey, was a happy recovery, I can say that more than ever I do recommend Adobe Photoshop Lightroom, I did recover this photos from the thumbnails that the software create, and with a 24″ monitor, you can work your magic, I do know I can’t print large copies, but at least 8×10, and I good with that.

I lost close to 300 RAW files when transferring last day from the laptop to my hard drive, I don’t know what really happened, but realized that all my Camaguey Collection wasn’t in my backup folder over my Lacie Rugged 500GB portable Hard Drive.

Well, finally some results, now I can proudly show to you guys the place I grew up, If you are from Camaguey and reading this, just drop a comment and I will give you the complete collection FOR FREE!!! how ’bout that!

No more to say, the pictures here:

Ok guys time to go, hope you enjoy,

Cesar out!

Cesar Here!.... Information Technology run thru my vains from 8 - 5. When not at the Office I drive a Toyota FJ Cruiser Trail Team Edition and a nice Photog Paraphernalia back pack (LowePro Dry Zone 200), inside ===> Nikon Cameras and lenses (Nikon D700, Nikon D300, Nikon F100) and many other tools, of course. Photography and Adventure are ingredients in my day to day life mixed with motorcycles and outdoor activities; and I do want to share My Experiences here with You.

    Hello Caesar!
    I’m sure you don’t know that I have become fan (I’m no longer addict to anything, not even to the food) to Your Darkroom site and that I visit it at least once a week: Excellent site, excellent pictures and excellent photographer.
    I would not offend you making suggestions on photography
    (zapatero: a tu zapato!) but for sure you would appreciate the points of view of an old-guard frustrated photographer, one of those that still remember, for instance, what it is a color compensation filter and what they were used for! Rotflmfao!
    I’m sending some comments “internally“, to your old yahoo address (do you use it already?)
    Warm greetings with all the nostalgia these Camaguey shots have brought to me.

    Hola, César: Las fotos, todas buenísimas. Excelentes.
    Me encantan porque casi todas están hechas desde arriba. Esas vistas son poco comunes. Ese fondo de palmeras es maravilloso.
    Espero ver pronto más fotos de Camagüey hechas por tí.

    Muy admirado Cesar, tengo mas de 40 años de no ver mi ciudad. Tus fotos no solamente las admiro desde el punto de vista profesional que tu le impones, sino desde el otro…. el de la ausencia. La nostalgia quizas.

    Mucho te agradeceria si me proporcionas el set completo que tan gentilmente ofreces. Quiero a traves de tu trabajo hacer un viaje imaginario al lugar que tu, yo y muchos otros tenemos en nuestro corazon.

    Gracias de nuevo por el regalo.
