The Marvel

Nine years ago I stood in front of this building in Habana Vieja... first the sign caught my eye and then observing the balcony, I noticed the old lady swaying in the window back and forth with the baby in her arms. She was aware that I was shooting and started to fix her hair as if prepping for a portrait. I kept waiting for both child and woman to be in a position to capture both...remember they were swaying. I wonder is she still alive today...the child fast approaching his tenth birthday...
