Nicaragua Street Photography

Most of the houses don’t look the best from the street. They seem to instead create their own world inside. Below is an example of what you may see behind the wall.  (photo info: 18mm, 1/125 sec, f/11, ISO 400).

We stopped at a cigar making factory (Tabacalera Ariel) while walking in Esteli. Below is a photo of one of the workstations (photo info: 18mm, 1/40 sec, f/4.5, ISO 1600). The land around Esteli is known for growing some of the best tobacco for cigars in the world. Esteli became a refuge for Cuban cigar makers after the Cuban Revolution in 1959.
