Another from my ongoing project on bar/shop keepers. This is Lisa at work in a small bar on the outskirts of Chapelton, Clarendon, Jamaica.

She works one week on and one week off from around 10am until the last customer leaves which at weekends can be 3 - 4 am. For that she's likely to get around 30 - 40 pounds for the week!

It was quiet when I was there on a weekday afternoon but apparently gets busier at night with the locals attracted by a couple of naked dancing girls!

Thanks for looking

I really like this shot, I love the way the white rim of her sunglasses stands out and the white piping around her top, her expression and pose is wonderful, nice shot.
