Harbour Island Street Photography, Part 2

One morning while walking around Harbour Island in the Bahamas, I came across this group of kids.  They were having a bike relay race around the block so I stopped my walk and took pictures.  It was so much fun hanging out with them.

Harbour Island Photography, Part 1

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:

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”.Bahamas Wedding Photographer

Thing 2:


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.

Elizabeth Gamble Garden Wedding

This was the sweetest little wedding.  Laura and Antin had a small gathering of family for the ceremony and then close friends joined for the reception.  It was spring, and the gardens at Elizabeth Gamble Gardens were all: “Check us out!  We are stunning!”.  Thank you Laura and Antin for having me there!  It left such a smile on my face…
