Banana Guy! By Sam Diephuis
Boxed lunches rule! If you ever get to Jamaica and you want to start exploring beyond jerk chicken (don’t get me wrong I love j-chick) hit up the boxed lunches on the side of the road. Seriously good stuff!!!

#photography #reggae #jamaica #travel - Today I had a day off. First one in 5 days of shooting. So what did I do? I went on a huge hike in the hills and took more pictures. I also took some images of owners of bars, restaurants and little shops. Cool stuff, nice people. Mellow day. I needed it.

Warning! don’t listen to this if you want some relaxing reggae music or if you around a sleeping baby or in a crowded quiet office space. This is an acapella version of a dancehall song by Sizzla. I want to post this to give you an idea of what these artists can do with their voice. Not far off from the punk rock of the early 80’s actually. Think Henry Rollins (Black Flag) or Ian McKay (Minor Threat). The music is made in a very similar way to old punk rock as well. Small studios, no budget, WAY too controversial for the big labels. Feel free to turn it off once you’ve gotten the gist it’s not for everyone.

On a side note, I will be going back to Kingston on the 15th of March (in 2 weeks) for an extended photo trip. Keep up with the blog and see what I am up to.
