Nuts & Track


Sept 29, 2006. Bog Walk Gorge, St. Catherine, Jamaica. 6:30am. The fog was nice and thick when we step onto the tracks. Half an hour earlier the bauxite train had passed transporting its wares. Thats the only user of the railway tracks, as the Jamaica Railway Service has long been defunct. Eddie, Stefi and I walked about a mile to the entrance of the tunnel that continued a few miles through the hills. We shot a few rounds of everything in sight, different angles. Separate from composition and texture what I found interesting was that at this moment, the metal track needed the lumber for support, while its was obvious it would way out last the lumber... Indeed, we all have a purpose.
