I was fortunate to visit Treasure Beach with my family for the first time during my trip Jamaica this past holiday. This beach is only an hour away from my residence along the south coast. It was a beautiful day. However, once we arrived we got a bit of news that made us have to turn around. So I didn’t do anything, but order a mixed drink at Jack Sprat, walk to the beach, looked around a bit, then got back in the van. We drove all the way to Linstead to tend to family business. Here are some photos of my short visit to Treasure Beach with some details of the bar at Jack Sprat.
There’s a lot of kitschy old memorabilia hung on the pillars around the bar. The ground serves as a reflector in this shot.
They had an old-time juke box!
Such a cute sign, one of my favorite images from the set. The colors are so “Jamaica” and i just love the juxtaposition of that photo on the bottom right (giggle).
This is my other fave!
Irie Vibes…Natural Mystic! : )
I envy the folks that live in those houses on the cliffs. Ill return to Treasure Beach, and the next time ill make it to The Pelican Bar!
Until next time – XOXO
I really enjoyed photographing families last year. One of the last sessions I did was in October with Robin, Will, and her pet hens- General Tso and Potpie. Robin and I met in 2007 when she had just started The Clinton Hill Blog and I had just landed the job at PACC. We’ve kept in touch all this time and I was so thrilled to visit the family at their beautiful turn of the century home and snap a few pics for her.
Seeing Robin’s home life, I cant imagine knowing a couple that lives more sustainable and I just adore their backyard. It’s very quaint and makes for an ideal place to take photos; loads of textures (brick, wood, straw fencing, etc.) and moderate northern exposure…
…doesn’t Robin look lovely back-lit? this is one of my favorite pics! It was so tough getting this photo because i began cracking up when the hens decided to run back and forth in the background- lol.
General Tso in the foreground, Potpie in the back.
The hens, love blueberries!
The moment Robin picked up General Tso, the hen immediately showed off her profile for me : )
I hope, if Robin decides to do a lifestyle blog, that this photo is used as a banner. The wood in the background is reclaimed from an unwanted shed the couple found on the internet. They took it apart and used it against the divider. It makes for a unique installation and conversation piece!
I just love a happy ending, don’t you? Thanks for having me, Robin, Will, Potpie, General Tso and their sweet puppy that passed away this week- Mallow.
