Photographer's Note

St. George's is the capital of Grenada. The city is surrounded by a hillside of an old volcano crater and is on a horseshoe-shaped harbor.

The city is a popular Caribbean tourist destination that attracts thousands of tourists, cruise ships, and celebrities. The city has significantly developed in recent years, while preserving its history, culture, and natural beauty. The city is home of St. George’s University School of Medicine. The main exports are cocoa bean cacao, nutmeg, and mace spice.

It has a moderate tropical climate that ensures the success of spice production. Nutmegs are the most plentiful crop, followed by an array of such spices as cocoa, mace, cloves, vanilla, cinnamon and ginger.

The original picture was taken on slide film many years ago. Storage conditions in the meantime have not been of the best. It has been digitised and cleaned up as far as possible using Photoshop, but technical quality remains poor. Apologies for this, but I still believe it is worth posting if only for the novelty value.
