Wanpis man i stap antap lo hul wara bilong Bisanumu

Ok, so in the past few months in my PNG retrospective I have borrowed the odd photograph from my girlfriend's collection mainly because I was often too busy myself to capture the moment.

Well in today's shot, I was too sick to move. I was off dying somewhere and well, my GF was up in the mountains behind Port Moresby with athletic young PNGean men climbing waterfalls and stuff.

Good thing I wasn't well.

I have always liked this shot, chances are I would fave it if GF had her own account.

Ok the truth is, no I wasn't sick and dying and I wasn't too lazy to go bushwalking. I am pretty sure, I was travelling on this Sunday and was unable to get to the bushwalking meeting place. Oh well oh well.

ps: Did someone say Volcano?

Photo taken 29 April 2007 at Bisianumu Falls, CP. Title reads: One man stands on top of a waterhole called Bisianumu.
Great capture by the GF, beautiful place.

Amazing photo and I'm going to fav it. Love the rivulets of water. I think I see a six pack in there :)

@kareen - there was a series of photos taken showing this man climbing up the waterfall. He was well fit eh?

@robv - Oh I spent a few Sundays at this waterhole. My profile picture is from there.

The GF has done good!
April 28th, 2012  
Oh that's gorgeous, it has such a fresh-air feeling about it. Could you not photoshop him out and put you up there?!
April 28th, 2012  
tell GF good job
April 28th, 2012  
Beautiful capture by GF :-) It looks refreshing......I can almost hear the sound of the water splishing splashing down :-)
April 28th, 2012  
Like a scene from the movie! Your girlfriend has a good eye :-)
April 28th, 2012  
Fav'ing your gf's shot. It's magnificent.
April 28th, 2012  
wicked awesome. do they jump from the top into the pool? look like it would be fun.
April 28th, 2012  
Wonderful capture!!
April 28th, 2012  
What an extraordinary place you live in! Wish I was there!!!
April 28th, 2012  
Your girlfriend takes a great shot too!! Love that water:)
April 28th, 2012  
No matter who really took this shot and why...;) this is a really good shot
This man looks like an invicible warrior !
April 28th, 2012  
@kimmistephens @annbo - Thank you ladies :)

@scottkaway @jolefont @allisonrap @zuzana @pwallis @trude - I have tried to convince her to start up her own 365 project, but she says she doesn't have the time to give it her full attention. I'll just sneak one or two pics in from time to time ;)

@filsie65 - I wouldn't know where to start, and I reckon this guy makes for a better photo subject!

@catsmeowb - Not at this pool. I have swum at other waterholes where jumping was going on, but not here. It was really rocky and sharp, and was old volcanic rock... not that forgiving on the feet!

@carolmw - Thanks Carol :)

@kloud - I no longer live there Bonnie, I left 3 years ago, all of this year's project is a retrospective look. But thank you!

@cocobella - Thank you Corinne, the average PNGean male is lean, athletic and very fit. Certainly very Warrior like in appearance.
April 28th, 2012  
Super!
April 28th, 2012  
@httpgeffed - Thanks!
April 28th, 2012  
Beautiful shot GF!
April 29th, 2012  
@beckys - hee hee, I'll pass on your message! Thanks.

King of the waterfall. Lots of movement in the water, he does look like he is thinking about jumping....
April 29th, 2012  
That's awesome
April 29th, 2012  
@onie - I have another King of the Waterfall shot, and this chap started singing. I think I may have video'd it. It was a cracker, but that's for a later shot.

@swilde - Thank you Sue.
April 29th, 2012  
Beautiful scenery. The guy is not half bad either.
April 29th, 2012  
Great photo!! What an amazing scene!
April 29th, 2012  
@daisy - Probably why my GF took the photo! ;)

@swguevin - It was a very cool place... bit of a hike to get there though.
April 29th, 2012  
So beautiful, Jason!

Stunning - good on GF for taking this, fav for me.
We head to Hughendon bright and early chasing dinosaurs, tho love this part of the world so will be back for longer next time. 6 months just not longer enough to travel, it'll be 12 months next time......
April 29th, 2012  
Cool capture! Nice POV and patterns in the water - your GF was a good shot!
April 29th, 2012  
Wonderful shot!
April 29th, 2012  
Can see a shared love of photography. Nice shot GF.
April 29th, 2012  
Beautifully captured shot and POV.
April 29th, 2012  
@clarek - the Bakery in Hughenden is not bad. No doubt you will stop up on top of the White Mountains, nice view from up there.

@sangwann - Thanks Dione :)

@alia_801 @cmuir1963 - Thank you ladies :)

@nikond40x - A shared love of Olympus too... might be my influence there a bit...

@hobgoblinwychwo - Thanks John.
April 29th, 2012  
Gorgeous!

@cathyomn - Thanks Cathy :)
April 29th, 2012  
love the stance
April 29th, 2012  
@houdiniem - its a good pose eh?
April 29th, 2012  
Amazing anthropology.
April 29th, 2012  
@seanoneill - Thanks Sean, it is a country that gets every anthropologist salivating!
April 29th, 2012  
kareen - Were you referring to a six-pack in the water or on his body? Anyway, it's a great photo.
April 30th, 2012  
@cjriggs - no beer in the water. Although this particular bushwalk often ended up at the Bluff Inn for a cold one on the way home.
April 30th, 2012  
she has an awesome perspective
April 30th, 2012  
@brumbe - its a great angle indeed!
May 1st, 2012  
she really should consider an account, that man really adds to the waterfall. Was he trying to tell her something?
May 2nd, 2012  
@tooki - Nah, he was just one of her guides for the walk that day. We both had walked there on many occasions and knew the way quite comfortably, but it always paid to have a local in case someone untoward was lurking in the undergrowth...

great shot! thats a great looking ... waterfall. your GF has a great eye ;)
May 6th, 2012  
@emjay8 - It was an impressive waterfall. This small section you can see was where we would all swim, it fell into a large water hole that emptied onto a shorter wide waterfall, which fell into a large crack in a rock, the water would then turn to the left and follow the crack. It would then fall from this crack into the abyss below, perhaps 200metres down. My profile pic is taken looking the other way. There is nothing below me in this shot, if I stepped backwards... aggghhhhhhhhh!
May 6th, 2012  
Very powerful....amazing shot.
May 8th, 2012  
@kdimagery - Thanks Kd :)
