A spirit of camaraderie characterised the three-day River Breeze Photography workshop held last weekend in the Buff Bay Valley of Jamaica’s Blue Mountains. Based at River Breeze cottage at Cascade, the three participants immersed themselves (at times literally) in all of the activities. Friday morning saw sessions that focused on DSLR camera familiarisation, creative composition and light interpretation and included a short climb to the nearby One Drop Waterfall. The day ended with a night photography session on the grounds of the cottage.
Jamaica’s national senior athletics championships were held between June 20 – 23, with the top athletes competing for a place on the team to the IAAF World Championships in Russia in August.
Usain Bolt and Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce led the way with many youngsters following closely in their wake to show the depth of of Jamaica’s track & field talent. Here are highlights from the weekend.
