Cigar Lady II H. Allen Benowitz
USA

2nd Place - Merit of Excellence

"Cigar Lady II"
Adhering to her native roots, wearing Afro-Caribbean Santeria whites this lady smokes a huge cigar; Havana, Cuba. 2008 [On a mission to Cuba with the Boca Raton JCC, on Citadel Square, I noticed this lady napping in a chair against a beautiful golden yellow wall. As I approached, kneeling, to gain a vantage point of accentuating her very long Cuban cigar [which did not need accentuating], I snapped this photo as her eyes slowly began to open, not quite aware of my presence, thus qualifying as a candid shot. A precious moment. The photo became one of my most iconic.]
