Grandeur in Garbage

Photo Feature by Irina Echarry

HAVANA TIMES, Feb. 11 — In a journey through the 100th Street dump, a few miles outside of Havana, I expected to find only garbage, repugnant odors and disgusting debris.  But nature made me change my point of view despite the mud and sun after a day of rain.

The light/darks, the diversity of textures, the infinite tonalities, the sky with its magnificent clouds, the photogenic herons and vegetation being born in filth, everything conspired in create a moving experience.

Here I’m leaving the readers of HT a sample of the beauty there that I found astonishing. I hope all of you enjoy it as well.
