While I was on my walk I stopped at this gully side that went around a bend and I wondered where it went. I took black and white photos all day but sometimes I redo some in colour just for the kicks.

Downtown, kingston 2020-aug, gates and fences

Jamaicans are naturally paranoid about their personal security. Trespassing, larceny and petty theft are an annoying part of living in Jamaica so you will see lots of fences and gates as if there is a high security prison around every corner. In reality criminals are a small part of the society. The major problems are agriculture and education. All this means that one has to be extra careful when doing street photography in Jamaica.

Isolating a subject is hard. When you look at street photography in New York or Tokyo you see these clean photos with perfectly flat, symmetrical walls and gigantic buildings, alleys that go off into infinity. Not so much in Jamaica; people are often bunched together or navigating crocked sidewalks trying not to fall and die. In this shot I spotted this old lady across the road by herself walking briskly past a no parking sign. I got 4 shots off before she went into the shadows.

Still shooting in hcbw. After fishing at the crosswalk I came upon a man is selling car accessories at an intersection. On this day I took 107 pictures in a matter of 3-4 hours. I am trying to work on a style so that I can take pictures that gel together.

Downtown, Kingston 2020-Aug, Crossing

photos by owen, published 2020-Oct-05, comment

I walked up the road abit and came upon a cross walk with some shade - you know Jamaica is hot. I took the opportunity to do some "fishing". A technique I learnt about on youtube. It mostly involves waiting around for things to happen. The "decisive moment" as they call it in street photography. I think I got some good shots.
