He participated and won prizes in contests for different institutions and web sites like Picture.com, His main work is dedicated to images having a specific influence on people, This photograph belongs to a photo group called "Maleconeando", It shows several children playing in the water at one of the natural pools off the Havana seawall known to locals as the Malecón, In the words of Darwin "if only people would look down, they might discover a new perspective on life, With this photo I can feel Havana telling me stories, secrets, sorrows and dreams, I tried to capture that happy moment created by the small things we do every day and that make us laugh, live and love no matter how much each of us might materially own".
