This photo was taken at Leggo studios in downtown Kingston in 1992. I was on the second floor hanging out and shooting some pictures of the singer Yamie Bolo & legendary drummer Horsemouth Wallace. Later I was looking out the window and saw this scene. I remember how I liked the textures and, the angles of the zinc roofs, the hard edges of the buildings and all the horizontal wires, and then there’s the laundry drying,  blowing with the afternoon breeze. This photo also appeared in my book Reggae Island.
