I had to ask Bernard in St. Lucia

Bernard talked to me for a while about why most in St. Lucia don't like to be photographed and I understood.  From his experience and from those I've spoken to, they have experienced many tourists taking pictures of them without their permission with no idea where their image will end up.

If I was him I'd probably feel the same way.

When I asked what does he do here, he pulled out a worn in book from his backpack.  It was filled with thank you letters from previous tourists who he took for tours on the island.  When he asked me the same question I waffled awkwardly about blogging/working for myself/photography.  Blogging is growing but relatively unknown to many.

Everything he wears is local.

Thank you Bernard for the talk about life, people, spirituality.
