  1. This beautiful photo seems me in a place where the people do not hurry and the life goes slower than a in some big city in the world.
    I noticed that red car is old like some 50´s model.
    For those reasons I guess that photo whas taken in Havana, Cuba.

  2. Hello! I think the photo is taken somewhere in New Jersey. A quiet evening, people are going home from work admiring the beautiful sunset.
