I went to the Port of Spain General Hospital today. It's on my list of buildings that I want to paint. On the bus drive to the hospital, I also saw some other buildings/landmarks of interest that I just had to photograph to remember as potential reference material for future paintings. The others, like the Salvation Army building or that bar on the corner of Henry and Duke, I did not pull my camera out in time for or the bus drove away too quickly for me to capture.
Port-of Spain is such a treasure trove of different architectural styles. In the coming year I would like to try some urban cityscapes.
Here are some photos from my journey this morning of East POS.
|Driving into Port of Spain. The ideal shot for me would have been angled a bit more east so that the towers would be more in focus and the Northern Range more visible.|
|Did not mean to capture the garbage! But look at the mother holding her daughter's hand as she walks her to school.|
|Van that drove into my picture! grrr!|
|Corner of Piccadily Street. Not the view I wanted again but I did not pull out my camera in time, but this is a historical corner. I think you definitely will be seeing this or something similar in the future from me|
