We recently visited Montego Bay, Jamaica for a day. This is a photo of our tour guide-taxi driver named Mr. Loyd Brown. He was an interesting character that showed us around Montego Bay, Jamaica. It was an interesting day driving through the streets of the city (away from all the tourists) and shooting out the windows of the cab as we sped through the crowded town.
We had an authentic jerk chicken lunch with him at a place called The Pork Pit.
This is how they smoke their chicken. Notice how they use a roof panel to hold the meat down!
We enjoyed Jamaica's local beer.
Loyd enjoyed a grape drink that I had never heard of called "BIGGA".

I started my street photography class last night. This is a genre that I absolutely love and really have a strong passion for! I find that candid shots taken when people are not posing tell such wonderful stories. I also like the black and white shots. Somehow they are easy on the eye and allow you to "paint" by number (so to speak) the colors on how you see it. My favorite street photographer right now is Vivian Maier.
The Pentagon received a $4 million dollar grant to develop a pocket sized drone dubbed the Nano Hummingbirdfor the way it flaps his wings. This hummingbird is a tiny robotic battery powered drone built to look like a bird for potential spy missions. Its guts are all motors and a video camera. Keep in mind that it is only a prototype but how cool is that?
Anyone that knows me can see how much I love hummingbirds!
Ok, I know I haven't posted in a while. No excuses, just life getting in the way! But this artist is someone I had to share with you. His name Stephen Wiltshire and he is such a talented artist!
He has been nicknamed "THE LIVING CAMERA". Why is that you ask? He has the unbelievable ability of painting and drawing detailed landscapes completely from his memory!
His work is brilliant as you can see in the following video.
