The Caribbean: For me it was always just a dream, words I'd read in a book, such as Treasure Island, documentaries I'd seen on the tube or the many pirate movies that Hollywood has produced over the years. Captain Jack may not live here, but the water and sky are so blue, the people friendly, the coconuts are melt in your mouth sweet, the local dish of stuffed roti's are very delicious and yes, there is no shortage of rum!
This trip of a lifetime was made possible by dear friends who let us spend 10 days sailing from Island to Island in both the British and American Virgin Islands.
I found the man in the photo below on one of those islands. His eyes captivated me, and he allowed me to photograph him with the afternoon light that filtered through the leaves of the palm trees above. As I love making portraits, he was a gift from the islands.
