Tourist Shoppers


Most of my photography from this day (18th July) was of a family gathering in the evening (those photos I’ll save for the family rather than subjecting everyone to them)  :-)  Earlier, I had accompanied the ladies (my wife, my cousin and my sister) into a shopping area not far from the hotel where we were staying, I think the Jamaican vendors on this side of the coast are the most persistent and persuasive vendors I’ve come across, and if you’re not careful, you’ll be walking by a stall and suddenly be inside it without knowing what happened  :-)

I didn’t do much photography in the shops/arcades, but I stepped away from the shopping every once in a while to snag a few shots. The first one I’m not too happy with but I couldn’t let that Schwinn bicycle pass  :-)

This one I believe is of the old Fire Station in Ocho Rios.

Here’s a bunch of thinkers :-)

A Tourist trap (a more appealing shopping area)

And on the way back I tried a photo of the hotel before entering the gates  :-)

    Man. It looked like you had Ochi all to yourselves. Where were the other tourists? I believe Jamaica’s economy have improved since the Lams are here. (smile) Nice photos. Regards. Cecil
