in the Jamaican port town of Falmouth is a tourist trap on the dock. This old gentleman spends his days weaving beautiful baskets and selling them for a living. The hands do their work while he seeks customers. Looks like he's been doing it a very long time...

Nice one, but that scene didn't look anything like Falmouth, MA.

Very nice shot! Weaving certainly does look second nature to him.
