Why did you take this photo? (Addressed to the photographer)

I wanted to share this rare breathtaking view of Clozier, St. John’s, Grenada, W. I. with the  world. The view itself encompasses a mountain, valley, coastline, and an open horizon. This photograph also serves as an encouragement for the Grenada Tourism Authority to  exhibit what Clozier has to offer to certain tourists who will like to visit rural areas. Rare  explorations like these are bound to enrich not just the social aspects between tourists and Grenadians, but also it has the tendency to improve the financial concerns of the countryside.

What is really happening here? (Addressed to the whole group—alternatively what does the photograph represent?)


In general, the picturesque photo represents peace or serenity. The green, lush vegetation symbolizes food security. Moreover, the support of the mountain signifies a self-sustaining culture, with fresh, clean air that characterizes new financial prospects. Grenada’s backbone is represented in its multidimensional landscape. The setting sun radiates warmth, life-force, social reputation, and the movement toward cultural and financial expansion. Besides, cultural purity is symbolized in the rainbow effect that is derived from the superimposed sunrays as well as the sense of cultural infinity is evident in the depth of the breathtaking view itself. The scattered houses represent livelihoods, shelters, and communities that correspond with social connections. Also, the variety of natural and manmade features imply diverse activities of the land (in regards to farming) and the sea (in terms of fishing) to include the usages of land and sea as forms of recreation and transportation to promote

socio-economic relationships between tourists and the local population.
