Photo Contest Entry #1
Stov, the happy Jamaican




This image was taken during a short visit to Jamaica in Nov 08.

The gentleman in the photo was with friends in the market of Port Antonio and when I approached him.

'Stov' was the friendliest person and was happy for me to take this photograph and more with his bicycle.

Although he clearly had little money and was living on his wits, he was happy to pose for photos and showed me where I could eat tradition Jamaica fare with local people.

I had Sorrel drink and superb food. I gave him some change for his troubles and kindness, but in doing so I still felt he would have done the same for nothing as he enjoyed showing a foreigner in his beloved Jamaica.

It just shows, with very little you can still afford a smile.

I wish Stov could see the photo but I have no way of getting it to him.

If I win the USD25 prize, it's no good to me here in Europe so if you can find Stov in Port Antonio, give it to him - you know what he looks like!

Stov
by: Therese

This one would have to be my personal favorite. Not only does Stov portray the quintessential Jamaican, it was taken in Portland, my favorite parish, and a beautiful place I try to visit several times a year.

By the way, I'm betting someone would be able to track him down in Portie to deliver the winnings!

thanks stove

Stove reminds me of all those really kind and helpful people I met during my travel through JA.

They helped me with important advices and showed me the most beautiful places!

With this vote I would like to thank all those people who still have a place in my heart(especially those in the southcoast!)!

Please go on representing your beautiful island in that pure and honest way!
