Jamaican Stalls (Shacks)
Contest Entry #012 - Jamaican Stalls
Architecture is one of the long-lasting essences of civilization that has escalated in development as the centuries passed. This is due to the new found technology and inventions of the modern age.
Regardless of the new and improved technology, some structures exist that are entirely made of board and zinc. These structures, at Irwin High School in St. James, in my opinion, are landmarks of beauty.
The uniqueness of their designs can be attributed to our country's street vendors, who go about making a living, by setting up these stalls on street corners and in school zones. There enduring quality is amazing.
The existence of these structures in my country has given me the opportunity to carefully analyze their rare and unusual construction and capture it in this photograph.
