Photographer's Note

This could probably be almost anywhere, but maybe there's something about it which looks vaguely tropical. Anyway, I quite liked the effect produced by the camera's auto stopdown to cope with this into-the-sun shot in the late afternoon.

The British Virgin Islands is a very strange place, where most of the local population have become quite rich on off-shore financial sevices. The very high wages suck in well qualified expats from the surrounding island states to provide a high quality of all kinds of services. Wild chickens roam the streets, since nobody can be bothered to catch and pluck them anymore. More on this theme another time.

I was between digital cameras at the time, so I borrowed my wife's for the trip.
