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.

Unretouched Antigua and Barbuda

These photos straight from my camera are living proof of the unretouched beauty of Antigua and Barbuda.

Wall Over the Sea at Long Bay Beach

The stone wall between the Long Bay Beach Bar and the beach has a sugar bird feeder suspended over it.

Long Bay is one of the most gentle and warm beaches on the island. I’ve heard old timers talk about days long past when they say this beach used to be in an even more natural state. But it’s still post card beautiful.

On the Way to Joseph and Janet Jones’ Exhibit at Harmony Hall

The trip to Harmony Hall was picturesque.

The exhibit “Oh Antigua and Barbuda” being launched today at Antigua’s Harmony Hall gallery was a collection of works by noted local photographers Joseph and Janet Jones. It was a rare portrayal of local life … so honest and sympathetic, and also somewhat of a time capsule since the aspects of life that it so touchingly captures, are also aspects of life that are rapidly changing here.

Kites Interspersed by Clouds

Driving back to St. Johns from English Harbour today I looked up and was surprised to see the same six sided kites that a Rastaman taught me how to make when I was young. I took a couple of photos of the kites lolling about in the sky and contemplated this pace of life enjoyed by some here, where a break in the day is plenty of time for the most enjoyable pursuit of nothing at all … like flying a kite.
