About the Image(s)

Nostalgia was created in La Habana-Cuba a few years ago. One of the organized activities was to visit a boxing Gym/School where they teach and train groups of all ages. We had a chance to speak with the principal teacher/trainer who told us that he lived in France for a while and was interviewed by a local magazine, and he was showing it to us. We had the opportunity to watch different groups of students. One example is in the images labeled Original 1, 2 and 3 showing two versions: color and B&W
Nikon D750 with Nikkor zoom lens 24-70 mm f/2.8 @ 34 mm. Settings: ISO 250, f/ 4 and 1/500 sec. Image was PP in Lightroom and cropped.

Thanks for the walk down memory lane. Back in the 60s, 70s boxing was so big and the Cubans held a special place. This series captures the aura of the time.   Posted: 11/01/2021 14:14:56

Isaac, sharp, colorful image with a story. I like the old fighter looking at his picture rather than posing and looking at the camera.   Posted: 11/15/2021 15:08:19

Isaac - thanks for sharing the back story of the trainer and for the other photos shared as well. The image clearly shows the trainer's pride of being profiled in the French journal. I am sure that he takes it out to show every visitor. The trainer stands out in the photo with his red/orange shirt, the journal is sharp, and the background is blurred but still allows the viewer to understand the context of where the action is occurring.

Isaac, the boxer is obviously proud of his past accomplishments. Your image tells a story. He is still very fit and has used his talents to teach a younger generation. His eyes looking down at the journal leads the viewer to the article and then his eyes in the image stare back at you. Touches of red in the shirt and the journal text tie the image together. Nice and sharp and blurred background to show the environment. Thanks for including the supporting images. Well done!   Posted: 11/18/2021 04:59:44
