These pictures were taken on most popular Caribbean resorts such as Puerto Rico, Roatan, Virgin Islands, Bahamas and others. Where thousands of tourists constantly filling up their cameras with vacation photos. Each of them strives to make the same picture that any internet service shows us for a query about Caribbean: a beach with white sand that is washed by turquoise sea waves and a palm tree, which certainly should grow near the shore. Despite the fact that sometimes it is enough to pass just a mile to the side, and you will able to see with your own eyes a completely different picture and feel the atmosphere of this region.
Not many people are willing to go a little bit further than city center ,studded with souvenir shops with nearby beach, and get acquainted with a local colour. People prefer to stay in their comfort zone. As a result all photos that can be seen on the Internet from these places - seem resembling each other.
The Caribbean's are mostly low-income and consist mainly of the private sector. Many of islands has a clear division into developed tourist zones in which "elite" real estate objects are hidden from "other territories" with the poor population. This border passes just behind the fence surrounding the resort. Life of a locals are sedate, there is no place for haste. Specificity of the tropical climate makes the landscapes looks barren, which creates a special visual contrast with the packed touristic places. So I've tried to focus on the dreary feeling that you experience when examining deserted landscapes of remote areas of seemingly "heavenly" places.
Most of the places remote from the port and not marked as "must see" on the tourist booklets look much more prosaic. And fewer people are interested in visiting them not even speaking about taking some pictures of rural areas. When passing by a small house with bleak paint burnt out on the scorching sun you do not pay any attention to the fact that it stands on the same blue bay shore and sand is just as white as on touristic beach.
