Last week, my family and I spent a few days in Harbour Island, a lovely little island south of us in the Bahamas off the tip of North Eleuthera. I took a walk in the late afternoon to do a bit of street photography, which I haven’t really done in years. I enjoyed it so much -the colors, the people, the light, the chickens. 🙂
The next post will be from a morning walk, when I came upon a group of kids having a bike race.
I’ve started an Instagram page for streetlife in the Bahamas: www.instagram.com/bahamaphotographer
Roosters don’t like being photographed -I hunted this one down for awhile:
“NO FEET ON BENCHES”
This is Jimmy and this is “Jimmy’s street!”, which he yelled at me as I approached. We ended up talking for awhile.
Jimmy is smiling here but later he confessed that he just wants a way off Harbour Island. He is stuck in “paradise”.
BARACUDA EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK:
I could do a whole book on the chickens of Harbour Island. They are a really challenging subject -it’s a good lesson in waiting for the composition to line up and then praying for a moment before they run off. Chicken are always moving -mostly away from me.
“Just Do It” (Or don’t. Just Chill.)
No Parking Please. No Dumping Please.

One view of a sunset hangout:
The other view of the sunset hangout. I took a video of this scene -the chitchat, laughter, and kids running around was a beautiful combination.
