A 'Likkle' Piece of My Home

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Moonscar on Thu Jul 28, 2011 1:58 pm

Lots of you may or may not know this, but I am from Jamaica. I was both born and raised there, and though many things in the U.S make life easier than here on the islands, I have always felt a piece of my heart pull me back here. I am posting from Jamaica now, and I would like to share, with all of you, the places of the island I call home. This is the real Jamaica, not the fancy tourist area's.

I will be uploading every day with new pictures.


From glorious sunsets

Image

To the tiny flowers and colorful leaves

Image

Image

Image

The beaches

Image

Image

Image

Image

And the messed up streets of downtown

Image

Image

The only thing I hate is the bugs. And no. You don't get a picture of them.
"'I'm bored' is a useless thing to say. You live in a great, big, vast world that you've seen none percent of. And even the inside of your own mind is endless. It goes on forever inwardly. Do you understand? Being the fact that you're alive is amazing, so you don't get to be bored."

-Louis CK

By the way, that's clouds layered on top of clouds.

Flowers, flowers, feet? Get to the interesting part! Like underground Jamaican ferret fighting rings! ... Or something.

Still great pictures though, moar!

Very nice Moonscar. It's always really cool to see how someone who's been born and raised in a certain area sees it differently from the tourists.

Thank you all! I had been trying very hard to get the pictures I wanted, and though I missed the opportunities for some, I caught others I did not imagine I would be able to take. I was really trying to capture a lot of town, a lot of the destroyed roads and the smaller shacks that were home for a lot of people, but the drivers were always speeding, so I never got a proper picture.

This was another sunset I managed to capture while walking up this God-awful hill. I was so sore the next day I couldn't move, but I'm happy I got the chance for this one.

Image

This is a very, very small portion of that God-awful hill. Trust me, it is much steeper than it looks. If I pointed the camera forward and not up, all you would see is gravel.

Image

More of town, which always, always looks grey and unappealing no matter how you point the camera. I wanted to capture more people, but you see, it's hard to take a picture of them when they're always looking at you funny.

Image

Image

Oh, but I did do one touristy thing. But local Jamaicans will do this every once in a while, too, not just tourists. We went rafting in the river. The man on the left came to sell us beer.

Image

There's certainly a lot of green in Jamaica. Even in Kingston and more city area's you cannot escape it.

Image

Image

Image

Image

There was a woman at the side of the river that sometimes makes food for the rafters. And oh, it smelled wonderful (What was left of it) I had been so hungry, too.

Image

This is a fallen slave wall from back in the day. Our rafter captain was telling us a lot about it.

Image

And this is the old and current bridge. It's bad quality and far away, but you can see that it is very broken even at this angle.
