[Jamaica]-Summer 2010

Hey everyone. This thread will basically be dedicated to showcasing the many photos I took during my trip to Jamaica this summer. quick background on me: I'm 19, jamaican, live in the US, and go back every so often to visit family. This time I had my camera though.

My goal is to show the actual roads, neighborhoods and cities on the island, as I think there are enough photos of Jamaican beaches and birds out there already. If you want to see all of that typical scenery you can just go to flickr and find about 1 billion photos of it. My goal here is to bring people an image of the island and its lifestyle that most aren't used to seeing.

With all of that said, let's get started!

These shots were all taken from the plane, and show the capital city Kingston and some of its suburbs. I kind of lucked out a bit ecause a storm was passing over the airport and the plane had to circle around a few times, giving me several extra opportunities to get photos. They're not my best, but I think they came out ok:

Good thread and nice pictures!

The airport road from Norman Mandely needs to be beautified, even though the ground is mostly marsh and what not.

Yeah, no doubt. The areas alongside it between the airport and downtown need some serious beautification as well. Some of the poverty in that small area that you can see driving by is just shocking.

Spanish Town... that was where Grace Jones was born!
Great photos of the real Jamaica!
