Feliz Navidad

Cuba, Havana. I wandered through downtown. The city was slowly coming to life after Christmas celebrations and was preparing for the New Year. Suddenly I found myself at a small market. When I saw this butcher, sitting among large red pieces of meat dangling from acid-green counter, I pressed the shutter button automatically.

This photo is a finalist in the People category of our 15th Annual Photo Contest. See all 60 finalists here.
