Nassau, Bahamas

Well, it looks like you made to Part 2, Welcome! With that said, the images below are from my point of view. Disclaimer goes here ~ "If I have offended any Bahamian, my apologies." Please invite me back and show me your Nassau!

I'm totally side-tracked by now and could care less! The backstreet and buildings are what I came to shoot. I felt relatively safe as I walked these streets knowing I wasn't far off path. I don't know what time the island wakes up but there was not much foot traffic visible where I was walking, just a few guys working on a car. I would have liked to explore further but time, gut-feeling, and the gentleman beckoning me to come and visit with him deterred me from wondering to far off-track.

This page holds one of my favorite descriptions I like to use "What was, What is, and What will be". In that the past, the present and the future of Nassau are all captured on this page.

Thank you Nassau, thank you Papa!

Walking Nassau


This building made me think I should pick up a local paper while walking, but got side-tracked againIf they spent that much money on advertising how much did they invest in cardboard platesIn the center of this image is another cardborad sign giving direction to the "Breakfast", I'm thinking "not hungry"Restoration efforts in the historic district can be seen everywhere
