“Smiley”

IMG_7818

Whilst wandering into Bridgetown, Barbados to walk off my Chefette pizza, I met this guy “Smiley” and ended up having an unexpected personal tour of the town from a local’s perspective, ending with sharing a cup of our own homemade rum punch. He lives in a ghetto and earns money as a beach cleaner. A fascinating, fun, eye-opening and humbling experience. Made me smile

Flamenco style

I was really pleased with this shot, as while the dancer was moving swiftly to music I timed it just right to get her facing towards me, with the fan and arms outstretched.  Despite the fact there was a sea of people around her watching, with a bit of vignetting and playing with the shadows I managed to isolate her.  To me, a flamenco dancer is iconic to Spain.
