I can only imagine how festive it’s been this week in Kingston and all over the island, let alone tomorrow, August 6. I had the option of heading there to take part in the festivities but instead, I chose to attend an important travel-related conference stateside.
I want to wish all Jamaicans a very Happy 50th Independence when it comes tomorrow!
And I’m excited to introduce the title of and new website for my upcoming photography book celebrating the island:
Feel free to browse the book’s new site and the first blog entry.
Last week, fellow travel photographer and blogger friend Laura Cook of With A Hope – whose photography I also love – nominated me to join in the Capture the Color photo blogging contest out of the UK.
The challenge is to post five photos that capture the colors red, green, blue, white and yellow.
It’s no secret that I love to show color in my shots — particularly when it comes to landscape and cultures in the Caribbean and Central America, where I’ve traveled the most the past three years.
But this time, I’m leaving out the landscape.
I chose to focus on the color of islands beyond the seas and the mountains or rainforests: the one that’s reflected in the people, who are full of energy and spunk, proud of their roots, living life to the fullest with what they have and without whom that pretty Caribbean landscape wouldn’t be as fun of a place to visit.
Let me know what you think! And please retweet it if you love it, there are some yummy prizes to be had (wink)!
