West  Indies

All of these images were taken many years ago on Kodachrome and Kodachrome II. I spent six weeks on the trip, took about 1000 slides, all with a 50mm lens :o) and visited almost every island between the two continents. There were many islands that I had to use the mail boat, ferry or a friendly fisherman's help to reach.
