Boxing dreams

Havana, Cuba – February 2010

During the last 30 years Cuba has produced more World Champions and Olympic gold medallists in amateur boxing than any other country. Many famous fighters, who came out of Cuba, were training at Rafael Trejo boxing gym in their youth. This run down open air facility in the Old Havana is a place of learning and mastering the art of boxing by the old school style. Boys begin their training very young. As sports are given a high political priority in Cuba, all children are systematically encouraged to develop their skills. Those who succeed will become heroes of Cuban society.

Very nice composition. Lovely contrast with the red in the almost B&W looks.

It's really a great composition, The contrast of the red lines with the grey and black background strikes my eyes so much!
