Several moms and their kids in Glebe Hill. I went past this house everyday on the footpath to the preschool.
Long-time friends Miss Monica and Miss Elva think they recognize themselves in the preceding 1986 photo I took of moms and their kids in Glebe Hill. One joked that they haven’t changed a bit but I have.
Sharon lived near our preschool and taught me how to roast breadfruit.
Sharon has always lived in Barrouallie, and has always worked hard. On our return trip, my son and I bought much-welcomed cold drinks from her.
This guy was taking a break from working. (To lime is to hang out.)
The photo was taken in Wallilabou, near Barrouallie, and just metres away from an old set used in the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean 1 & 2. Those scenes set in Port Royal? Shot here.
I don’t know the names of these two gentlemen, but this was taken during carnival. They stood liked they owned the town.
Carnival, or Vincy Mass, is a wild celebration of music and heritage with street parties, steel pan calypso performances, costume parades. It goes on for a few days. I was the photographer for one of the floats. I remember that day, but Sunset rum might have obscured the others.
This man said to me: “You have a camera, but what can you see?”
