Half Moon Bay, Antigua

I was on a two week photo assignment in Antigua, and wanted to capture some photos from a locals perspective. “Lobster” (as he likes to be called) shows up on Half Moon Bay beach every morning to set up shop. He grabs his jewelry and souvenirs from underneath a bush he hides them in nearby, then walks to the coconut trees at the nearby abandoned hotel to gather them and sell to beach goers every day. He said his fiancé made most of the souvenirs he sells but that she recently passed away after having a seizure in September. When I asked him if he could find me a small coconut for me to take back to my hotel room to photograph, he just climbed up the tree in front of me.
