13th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
El Mono Blanco (The White Monkey)
This is one of those wonderful characters I've met along the way who seem to come out of a dream. He was happy to have me photograph him. He spoke to me in Spanish and told me he was from Cuba. He said he was called "El mono blanco" (The white monkey). He told me about the Cuban music coming out of his speakers, and he even sang a few lines. He thanked me for photographing him. I thanked him for being himself.
