Comments: Coral stone slave huts - sunset, south Bonaire. These huts were constructed in 1850, this was 13 years before slavery was abolished on Bonaire, and served as facilities for slaves working the salt ponds where they collected and shiped the salt, one of Bonaire's most important export products. These huts were used as sleeping quarters and place to put away personal belongings of the working team. Each Friday afternoon the slaves walked seven hours to Rincon to weekend with their families, returning each Sunday. Four Obelisks on Bonaire were used as navigational shore markers to guide ships coming in to load. The obelisks were painted red, white, blue and orange (the colours of the Dutch flag). GTPhoto is a full marine agency covering islands, oceans & underwater - worldwide, with Bonaire as an absolute specialty - brilliant light & time. Maximum fine art!
