Photographer's Note

A pair of islands in the Southern Caribbean comprises the independent nation of Trinidad and Tobago. In the islands' earlier days the islands were ruled alternately by British and French colonists. Its present population of approximately 1.3 million is made up of the descendants of Africans brought over as slaves, and by Indians who relocated in search of jobs. Rich in natural resources, Trinidad and Tobago is listed as the third richest in Gross Domestic Product per capita in the entire Americas... after the United States and Canada.

The site is Fort King George, a castle built by the British Colonizers of Trinidad and Tobago in the 1770s. The 'level-headed woman' seen in the photo is demonstrating her prowess in balancing one, two or more bottles, in exchange for a few dollars.

I shot the photograph with a new compact Panasonic Lumix camera, with a Leica lens.
