Key Biscayne – Monochromatic Images

I’ve often asked myself, “is it a crime to print monochromatic images in color?” Much of the way I see photography comes from my early experiences shooting black and white.

138 images (may be slow to load) Grenada is called the spice isle due to all the different spices grown there but I think it should be called the friendly isle because of all its friendly people. I’ve visited several Caribbean islands and have not felt nearly as welcome as I did in Grenada. It […]

The Island wants us to stay…

We have one more day on the Island but the Island won’t let us leave, we’re LOST!

The OTHERS are openly friendly but very different!
