For the Easter Monday, 22nd April I attended the 36th Montpelier Agricultural & Industrial Show, Saint James, Jamaica. This was a good day out for all the family. This show allowed you to see what food was grown in Jamaica and what live stock was raised in Jamaica. It was educational and entertaining with participation from the crowd. For the late evening there was the Miss Farm Queen and various Performing Artists. Food and drink was in abundance and umbrellas were only used for shading people from the sunshine.
Jamaica is known as a good place for tourism because of its lovely beaches and sunshine. It is also famous for its reggae and rum. It is rich in agriculture and when you travel through Jamaica you will see that there is a lot off greenery. We need to export more than coffee to the rest of the world.
I was able to capture images of animals, plants and people.
I left my bird in its cage back in Westmoreland and headed off to Montpelier.
It was a bright sunny day so I wondered around and started taking pictures. Here are a few below.
For the next set off pictures I captured the live stock and the growth of plants of various kinds.
The final images captured the entertainment, the involvement of the crowd and the food – I was hungry.
It was a good day out and the images captured are best described as a documentary of an agricultural and industrial show.
Finally back home in Westmoreland I captured this image of the beetle in my back garden. This insect helps to keep the country tidy. They are an essential part of the ecosystem. Do not kill them!
It looks cute in its black armour 🙂
