It is hard to get "clean" street photography shots in Jamaica because everything is dense. And by dense I mean chuck-up; buildings, people, cars, bushes, everything. But I have to work with what I have. Plus the sun is very harsh in the middle of the day. Most street photos on the internet is one guy stepping into a shadow but I have no such luck yet. But I am improving my figure to ground relationship skills on a fixed 28mm lens.

Dominoes at the side of the road. The thing with this setup is that only 3 people can play each time before the table is mounted against a fence. However 3 players does add an extra layer of challenge.

The traffic is not so bad once you get into Kingston nowadays with all the kids working from home. In these pictures there is a woman waiting on a fresh fruits mobile kart vendor. I am not sure when they repainted the building.

I rarely take portrait photos but sometimes its easier when passing people in motion. I could always crop the photo but I keep my editing to a minimum.

For the inaugural post we are going to be buying juice from the lady at the road side. And as usual it is lunch time in Jamaica in the midday sun. The guy in the St Mary's shirt added a pop of colour which is always welcomed when taking pictures.
