Artist's Description

BEHIND A BEACH MARKET IN OCHO RIOS JAMAICA. A GOOD PLACE TO TALK TO SOME JAMAICANS AND INTERACT. I USED PHOTOSHOP ELEMENTS FOR THE EFFECTS.
IN THE MARKET THE JAMAICANS MAY SEEM OVERLY AGGRESSIVE TO SELL YOU STUFF. THEY ARE JUST TRYING TO FEED THEMSELVES AND THEIR FAMILIES. THE TOURIST MONEY IS THEIR LIVELIHOOD.
AWAY FROM THE MARKET SCENE YOU COULD SIT AND TALK PERSON TO PERSON. THE JAMAICANS I MET ARE VERY NICE, POOR BUT PROUD PEOPLE. THEY LOVE TO SMILE AND LAUGH. GIVING THEM GIFTS IS UNEXPECTED BUT APPRECIATED. THEY LOVE MUSIC CDS (ESPECIALLY REGGAE), BOB MARLEY PHOTOS, MARDIGRAS BEADS, LOLLIPOPS (FOR KIDS- BUT ADULTS LIKE THEM TO), AND THE FANCY HOTEL SOAP AND SHAMPOO. THESE GIFTS COST ME NEXT TO NOTHING AND ELEVATE THE SPIRITS OF THE JAMAICANS. BRINGING THEM SOME FOOD FROM YOUR ALL INCLUSIVE RESORT IS GOOD. WHEN YOU ELEVATE SOMEONE, YOU GET ELEVATED IN RETURN. THE ACT OF GIVING IS ELEVATING. SOME OF MY JAMAICAN FRIENDS HAVE ALSO GIVEN ME GIFTS TO ELEVATE MY SPIRIT EVEN MORE.
