Every Day Life In Jamaica

Contest Entry #007 - Every Day Life In Jamaica
This photo was taken in the Charles Gordon market, downtown in Montego bay.
This photo, I believe, captures the true essence of Jamaica, not what is beautified to create a partially superficial image of our island.
This picture was captured in motion, the animal involved was no actor, as a matter of fact, he was totally unaware of what was happening therefore giving realness to the picture.
This picture i believe is fit for a book to record the most picturesque scenery in Jamaica.
At that time the market was crowded with people, but my small digital camera was in the right place at the right time.
It was taken in November, the time of year when the animals are in droves because of the Christmas build up, therefore there are a lot of scrap food in the designated area.
The capture of this picture was once in a life time, as you would never see such raw beauty every day.
In conclusion I truly do believe that this picture captures the true and realistic image of Jamaica and the beauty of our animals.
