harvest moon from the hills

Harvest Moon From The Hills

full moon; supermoon; harvest moon… what a glorious sight on monday, september 8th, 2014 from the paramin hills in trinidad. headed up there early to catch the sunset before my wife and daugther had their yoga class ‘under the full moon’ at the north deck (a banquet facility under and open sky with beautiful coastal views) – i had promised myself that i would attempt to photograph the next supermoon from those hills; so the opportunity was there!

quite frankly it snuck up on me and it made its appearance earlier than anticipated. i had been photographing a so-so sunset in the other direction, when i noticed it in the sky already. went back to the car, switched up lenses and started shooting into the night sky…

weathered doors

VB4925

taking my wife to a conference brought me to st. augustine, just east of port of spain in trinidad. visible to the north was mount st. benedict, home of the abbey complex (consisting of several buildings including a church, a monestary, a seminary, a yogurt factory and a drug rehab centre, amongst others). alas the light was too harsh and resulting photographs are not usable – but, i did come across what looked to be an abandoned building towards the very top of the complex – these doors were there, just waiting to be photographed…

relic (b&w and with colour)

Relic (B&W) Relic (With Colour)

the original postal outlet in tortuga, trinidad, accompanied by a gorgeous tree full of texture and character – now alas a relic, as time and the elements slowly but surely take their toll on the structure…

i struggled with which version to release – monochrome or with colour – which do you prefer?

146 barrows

VA5111

i drive by this property virtually every day – it catches my eye every time. i can’t explain the appeal but i finally had a chance to photograph it when i was driving by at an off-peak traffic hour…

from the median

From The Median

standing on wrightson road near independence square in port of spain on a median as cars whiz by on either side of me. memories of doing the same thing near the eiffel tower in paris all those years ago…

performing arches

VA4863

the national academy of performing arts building (napa) in port of spain. This is a tough one to photograph as the lighting is somewhat sporadic. there is always a blue/purple glow about the building. the red/orange in this instance was presumably used for the performance on the following night. There are light towers on the grounds surrounding the building, which i am sure are meant to light the exterior space but i have yet to see them turned on. according to a security guard i spoke with, they only get turned on when an event is taking place…

city from the hill

City From The Hill

another find… port of spain in all its glory at dusk from lady chancellor road. a cool drive along a narrow winding road into a pretty exclusive residential area. near the top are magnificent views of the savannah and the downtown core beyond. the road itself is frequented by walkers, joggers, and cyclists – depending on the time of day you do have to take care while driving for all the people going about their exercise routines.

on the shore

On The Shore

mayaro beach on the southern east coast of the island of trinidad on an overcast day. the approach to this amazing 12 mile long beach is especially amazing as you drive a 2 lane highway through seemingly miles of coconut groves. though we did get to swim in the late afternoon when the clouds finally broke and the weather warmed up a bit, i am once again thankful for the magic these clouds performed…
