About this image


I came across this scene whilst walking the streets of Cienfuegos, Cuba. The position of the sun cast the shadows of the power cables and supporting pylon symmetrically on both sides of these walls. The scene was completed when the little boy walked along the pavement, stopped and looked at the wall and shadows. Why he stopped I will never know, I could not find any reason but I am glad he did.
