Colors combinations are everywhere, if you just look. This is not a chattel house but it just as important. It is what you might call a galvanize zinc fence or barrier separating houses.

But I am shooting this just for pure colors. The marriage of green and the rusty red here is wonderful. Click…I gone…

How many of these old lovely structures have I passed in my youth not knowing the beauty that lies within? With such great design and form they have outlived many a hurricane. They have shown great resilience and prove that they will be here for years to come.

This old plantation is called Brighton Plantation. It is located in St. George in the middle of the island. And every Saturday morning a unique thing happens. It becomes The Brighton Framers Market. Framers form near and far venture here to sell their vegetables and fruit.

If need be you can also get a cup of tea or coffee to get you going.

The architecture of the buildings on this property is simply marvelous. I am not a 100% sure but if the Brighton House is still part of the plantation, then it is one of the oldest houses in Barbados. Historical notes have indicated the house was built in 1652.
