Believe it or not this was a completely spontaneous pose from this young Cuban woman "La Chica" who just jumped into frame as I was shooting this car on a street in Havana, Cuba. She spoke virtually no english and I speak very little spainish so I can assure you she was all "natural" with this pose. The friendliness, spontaneity and jovial personality of the Cuban people was a refreshing surprise.
