So close and yet, so far

On our trip to Montego Bay in Jamaica, the tour bus let us out on a busy section of the shopping district.  We parked right next to Margaritaville and piled out onto the narrow sidewalks to spend our “free time” before the tour would move on.

As I mentioned before, this section of the city is packed in with touristy shops and vendors trying to get you to spend your dollars before you moved on.  As we walked down the street, I noticed this wall with a fence that looked out on the beautiful blue waters of Montego Bay.

It’s kind of a tease here.  The street is hot and crowded.  If you’re into shopping, that’s fine but if you’re wishing for the blue waters and gentle breezes it seems like that’s far away.  The fence is locked so you can’t get out to the beach without paying the entrance fee or being a guest at one of the businesses that has beach-front access.  I guess it is a subtle form of advertising – Just a peek to make you long to be out there.  Now that I think of it, being on the beach would be great right now!

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
