The "My World In Photographs: Part III" Story

It was an ordinary day.  Posting my final edition of photographs I have taken while on vacation in the island of Sint Maarten/St. Martin.  I took 1,486 photos during my time on the island and narrowed it down to 64 for my three day photo adventure with you.  If you have been looking at my posts during the last couple of days, you have seen many more of the my photos which I have included in my stories about the island.  Once again, I hope you enjoyed the photographs as much as I have enjoyed taking them.  It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.  PS - Once again, click on photos to enlarge them.


A few flowers still remain from a wedding that was held on Orient Beach.
A common sight on the island of St. Martin is the crossing of the goats.  Never know when they, or perhaps a herd of cows, may think it's time to cross to graze in a new site.
I think I take this same photo every trip I make to Philipsburg.
Massage therapy is popular on the beaches of St. Martin.
Colorful decorations by an Orient Village restaurant. 
Ready for customers.
A door in Marigot, the French capital of St. Martin. Looks as if there have been years or advertisements that have hung on this door 
You can go either way in this building.
Another beautiful parrot.
This beach walker was overcome with the spirit of St. Martin while walking on Orient Beach.
Small carving for sale in an art gallery. 
Colorful hotel on the island. 
Not quite sure what was in the bottles, but they certainly are colorful.
Island flower.
A car passes as two young women talk outside Il Netuno Restaurant.
Art Gallery in Grand Case on the French side of St. Martin.
The note in the glass says "Reserved."  Perhaps for one of the arriving ferry patrons to Pinel Island.
Don't you just love the colors.
A wooden walking bird.
One more ancient relic from the past.
My $10 close-up lens for my iPhone gives remarkable photos.
I love the tiles on the roof of this villa in Orient in St. Martin.
Every year I travel to Pinel Island, a small island off the coast of St. Martin, I climb the hill of the island with my wife to take this same photo.  I have close to a dozen of them and every one is different, since the tides constantly change the sandbar where the beaches for the island are located.
A selfie on our return trip by ferry from Pinel for LDub and his wife Carol.
