Day 4 – The Sun is Back

We were pretty excited to wake up with some sunshine this morning. I was starting to worry. We spent the morning shooting some island broll before meeting up with Suki on the top of Cherry Tree Hill for a long chat. Sunscreen is no match for the Bajan sun. I got scorched.

Tonight was a spectacle. Bajan track and field star Ryan Brathwaite ┬árecently won a gold medal at the IAAF World Championships in Berlin effectively making him the World Champion in the 110 m Hurdles. The nation of Barbados threw him a huge celebration at Kensington Oval Cricket Pavilion upon his return home. Music, speeches some dancing….and then more speeches. The Barbados Government was kind enough to grant us access to the event.

none of the journos realized that this marching band was going to cruise through and ruin all of our shots of Prime Minister Thompson and Ryan Brathwaite arriving. The Ryan in the blue suit, the PM wearing sunglasses and a clarinet player in red and white. Guy blew a mean clarinet.
