One bright island in the Caribbean Sea. When I think Jamaica I think colors… vivid colors… Hot yellow sun, green luscious hills, dreamlike turquoise water, white powdery sand, pink tropical flowers.
The most popular phrase here is “No problem, mon”… This is local attitude to everything, the style of live. Given that the population is poor here in general, it is still “No problem”.
Sometimes though the poverty can be really annoying – the locals will try to squeeze every cent out of a tourist.
Occasionally I felt unsafe and stalked, but still managed to wander around the neighborhood with my camera – the curiosity has won over the fear. The results of my heroic behavior.

….At daybreak, when the storm was over, not a trace of the ship was in view. The sun rose out of the waters, red and bright, and its beams seemed to bring the glow of life back to the cheeks of the Prince, but his eyes remained closed. The mermaid kissed his high and shapely forehead. As she stroked his wet hair in place, it seemed to her that he looked like that marble statue in her little garden. She kissed him again and hoped that he would live…

The Cure “A forest”

Come closer and see
see into the trees
find the girl
while you can
Come closer and see
see into the dark
just follow your eyes

I hear her voice
calling my name
the sound is deep
in the dark
I hear her voice
and start to run
into the trees

Suddenly I stop
but i know it’s too late
I’m lost in a forest
all alone
The girl was never there
it’s always the same
I’m running towards nothing
again and again and again

My first trip to the deep forests of Ontario led me to Temagami – five-hour drive north of Toronto.

Temagami is truly a place of mystical magic. It is the reality that fuels the popular perception of Canada’s great Northland: Old growth pine forests. Smooth blue waters. Bountiful fish and wildlife… Pronounced “Te-MAWG-a-mee” (the word is Ojibway for “deep water by the shore”). This place has lifted the spirits and captured the imagination of generations of indigenous peoples and for traders and trappers and naturalists and painters and poets and photographers and film-makers and tourists.
