It was another of those endlessly gorgeous tropical afternoons on the British Virgin Islands and I was down at Cane Garden Bay, one of Tortola’s most popular public beaches, enjoy the sea and sun and the whole Margaritaville ambience. As I was taking it all in I looked over and noticed this fellow sitting at a table by one of the many wooden bar-shacks that line this stretch of the beach. There was something about the composition – the palms, the sand, the solitary traveller taking time out with a cold beer and a book – that struck a chord with me and brought back memories of some of my own youthful travels in the tropics. And so I sneaked this shot.
