The Top of La Concha

The Top bar is gone of course. Replaced by this carbuncle of a spa under construction.

Colors On Catherine

I was out last weekend collecting pictures for use here and I saw a collage of colors fall into my camera on Catherine Street, not far from El Siboney Cuban restaurant. The sun was rising under an angry gray sky and as it rose it illuminated this bright yellow Conch cottage. That got me started and slowly I started to see primary colors all the way up the street as I trailed my Labrador.

Catherine runs from George Street in New Town all the way to Bahama Village and it's a broad street, unusually wide in fact, for most of its course. As winter approaches and we get crowded out by the seasonal crowds who stick to the obvious routes, Catherine becomes ever more important as a back road across town.
