These first two shots were done in Auto mode, using black and white setting.
The rest of these were done in Portrait mode with an ISO setting of 1600 to let in more light. All of these pictures were without flash, using only the available light in the bar or on the street.
These type of photos will never replace good 'ol color shots, but I like them. What do you think?
* The new Mayor (whom I am NOT liking very much) recently instituted a crack down on liquor licenses all over the island. If the owner name did not match the name of the bar and address, the license was revoked. As a result, fully half of the businesses on the island have lost their license. It has always been that the license followed the bar, not the original owner. She expects each business to pay $25,000 US DOLLARS to get a new license issued. Guess how many people have that kind of money just lying around? So don't be surprised when some of your favorite places can't even sell you a beer. Way to go Your Highness, you have just signed the death certificate for a lot of businesses and put quite a few people out of work.
