This is where they make the “onba carts” that the people push around the island to transport goods since there are few cars.

    Awesome pics. 🙂
    Did you use a filter or something for the inside of the Red Pumpkin?

      Thanks David. No filters, I just steadied the camera on the pumpkin and got the photo when the light was blinking red. That’s the first time I’d seen it at night (well, almost night) and was able to see it in a completely different way.

        Oh, it was (almost) at night!
        Makes sense, now.
        Yeah, I’d love to see it at night one of these days.
