Here is a sample of photos that appear in JK McCrea's book about Havana Now  (first "rough working" edition)

This photo was near the Hemingway port called Cojimar.

Cars are kept running, any time, any where.  Here these young men are working at 8:58 p.m. outside their apartment in Vedado, south of La Rampa Blvd. near the Hotel Nacional.
