As a writer and photographer I travel between my life in Toronto, my life in Antigua, and anywhere else my wanderings may take me ... writing my books and enjoying local arts and adventures along the way.

The Artist Stephen Murphy

Today we visited a showing of works by the artist Stephen Murphy. I had heard about Stephen Murphy from other artists on the island and I was eager to see his works and to learn more about the artist himself.

Liming

Today the kids and I sought out the true experience of Caribbean liming.

For the kids and I tonight was our first full fledged night of photographing evening carnival festivities.

Just Out of Reach

The wind gusts were strong. In a breath the bird was gone.

For all the small things that seemed a little out of reach today, it seems everything important was no further than the act of reaching for it.

Photos of Antigua Kiddies Carnival

Carnival is for making new friends. The kids had a great time making friends with other kids in the mas band.

Every year at around this time Antigua is taken over by carnival. My kids “played mas” in the junior carnival which is what the locals call taking part in a carnival parade.

Opening of Carnival City

Two talented performers warm up the crowd for the performances later in the week.
