Off to St. Maarten...
The top of one bunch of plantains.
The pile getting ready for shipment.
So today I was homebound for family reasons. So when I got a chance to escape at the end fo the day I did. As it was sunset, I started looking for a great "end of the day" shot. Where would it be? What photo could I take with the great afternoon light?
Well as I was driving around I saw some men stacking the plantains, getting them ready for transport. There really wasn't great light around but this was a new experience. The plantains were being counted and weighed, then placed on a boat for St. Maarten (with a stopover in Montserrat). The boats leaves tonight (Monday) and will get to St. Maarten on Wednesday.
I had never seen this process of counting/weighing the plantains before they leave the island. What a great opportunity for me as I was wondering looking for a photo. Here is it was as long as I was willing to look and be flexible in my plans. It was the perfect afternoon shot for the day.
