  1. I see the way the tide is flowing, nonetheless, I will still vote for my personal favorite- Cuban Fruit Stand, is my top choice, followed by Hidden, which is so perfectly balanced.

    1. Hey, Roxanna. Thanks for voting. Cuban Fruit Stand it is! The balance in “Hidden Havana” is precisely what I like about it.

    1. I like that one too. As I was taking it I imagined it wouldn’t come out as good as it did. The result really surprised me. Thank you for voting.

    1. There were so many photo ops in that town. That Greek temple was already ancient when the Romans got there. Thanks for voting.

    1. Thanks for voting, Mike. By voting for “The Sands of Time” you have created a tie with “The Tourist.” Let’s see where this ends on the 7th. Thank you for voting.
