'scuse me, dear

A Streetcorner / Soufrière, St. Lucia
Soufrière is a very colorful place - both in its exterior facades and in its people. Everybody I came across seemed like they could have an interesting story to tell - good or bad - true or not. These are real people living real lives. Unlike many places in the Caribbean, Soufrière does not seem to be particularly impacted by tourism. While tourist dollars can have a positive economic impact on an otherwise depressed economy, the cumulative negative impacts usually weigh heavier on the daily lives on those who make the islands their home.

wow the textures of decay are seriously at play here. Yet, amidst all the decay, all the colors are refreshingly vibrant and "so alive".
