Eleuthera Photos - For Everyone!

Eleuthera photosEleuthera is for everyone who loves the raw beauty of turquoise/blue water rocking back and forth between a sweeping white/pink sand beach and a shock blue sky spattered with sugar white cotton clouds sailing by. And I have the photos of Eleuthera to prove it. I just need to find a little more time to post more of them.

In the mean time, I will take this opportunity to recognize some of the photographers whose photos of the Bahamas I've come to appreciate and respect over the years:

John Gynell has one of the nicest photo galleries I've seen of the Bahamas. Okay, so they're not photos of Eleuthera, but Exuma is close enough. Even better is John's eloquent dialog on what he sees when he's shooting photos of the Bahamas. One of my favorite lines of his:
"In abstractions of warmth and sensations of cold, we hold our breath and find ourselves immersed in a world of bubble and glare, float and shimmer, depth and dazzle..."
Allow me to add:
"Your photos are off-the-hook, John."
John also hosts a blogger site called Silver Bahamas and recently posted some color photos of Exuma there -- beautiful stuff.

Cookie Kinkaed is one my favorites for commercial photography in the Bahamas. Wonderful compositions. One of my picks from her portfolio is her Coral Sands Collection. I've had the pleasure of visiting this fine resort a number of times and shot a few photos of the place -- delightfully clean architecture and furnishings. It's definitely a "must-go-to" place to chill out when you're on Harbour Island.

Don Nusbaum has a photo gallery called Caribphoto where he displays some very interesting shots of the native people from around the Caribbean. I've been a fan of Don's work for some years. Don was one of the first people I contacted when I was on the hunt for various photos of the Bahamas. Like Cookie, Don has a long list of clients that reads like a "who's who" in the world of major publications. Don also hosts a travel blog called The Caribbean Travel Advisor.

And then there's Bahama Louie. This kid (more like young man now) has an excellent eye for the creatures and surroundings of Eleuthera. I'm not remembering his story too well, but I seem to recall he once posted a message that talked about his losing some of his earlier photo work on an old website of his. Love your work, Louie! Just wish you'd post more or your photos.

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention my friend Derek Catalano from Nassau. Derek has an interesting gallery of photos and art work that has a distinctive Bahamian style about it. Derek also hosts a blog about the Bahamas called Native Stew.

I'll be back sooner rather than later with some more updates. Until then, hope you enjoy surfing these sites.
