Tripela liklik meris ol i gat bikpela het i pain.

Well maybe they don't have headaches but they look stern and gruff! Well sort of.

Sometimes the girls were allowed to be our guides in the jungle, sometimes they got told to stay at home...

Three young ladies all posing for the hairy white guy with the camera at the end of a walk to the waterhole.

Say Cheese!

Photo taken 3 May 2009 at Bisianumu Rubber Plantation, CP. Title reads: Three Girls with heavy thoughts.
They do look like they are concentrating very hard. The tall girl is stunning!!

They have spunk!

@onie - Em nau!

@hellcat - They sure do, I hit the trigger at the right/wrong moment?
May 3rd, 2012  
Right moment. There us mire said here then in the demure smile. :)

*is *more
Cell.... :p
May 3rd, 2012  
Your camera catches everything! This is so so good!
May 3rd, 2012  
I love that there are three distinct expressions here and have to agree with @onie the tall girl is beautiful and that is compounded by her calm intense expression
May 3rd, 2012  
I love this photo. They each have such a different expression for this one photo. The girl is super model chic. The boy in front of her looks like "huh?"-- he even has the half upper lip thing going on. And the boy on the right-- don't mess with him. He's a tough one, ready to take you out if you cross the line. :)

Your PNG shots are so great to see... the people, the place, beautiful
May 3rd, 2012  
They all have such different expressions
May 3rd, 2012  
@hellcat - :D

@maggiemae - Thankyou Maggiemae :)

@lbmcshutter - I took one other photo of the tall girl and will admit I did not realise at the time, but it is only with hindsight that yes, her looks I noticed. I walked this area a few times and got to know some of the kids quite well, but they were always different, always new ones at the community.

@herussell - They're all girls I believe. I think...

@debsulzberger - I have a photo album here where I printed off 200 portraits of the people of PNG and it is the people that make this place so wonderful. Despite the gorgeous scenery and amazing wildlife, it is the people of PNG that capture your heart.
May 3rd, 2012  
@peterdegraaff - they sure do, this is not a typical photo shoot in PNG.
May 3rd, 2012  
I love it...I always love your photos of children. The tall girls eyes are breathtaking. The intensity of the one in the red shirt is powerful. And I love the clothes line in the background...the colors hanging on the line. Perfect setting.
May 3rd, 2012  
Great combination of expressions :)
May 3rd, 2012  
@bobfoto oops :)
May 3rd, 2012  
Your portraits always have great character.
May 3rd, 2012  
Aw. Lovely shot. They look as if they are trying so hard to be tough.
May 3rd, 2012  
Great capture Jason - love their expressions...and the tall girl is quite stunning!!
May 3rd, 2012  
Great cluster of facial expressions.
May 3rd, 2012  
They seem so intense, this is lovely! The tall girl is gorgeous, not to take anything form the other two she just has a model look to her.
May 3rd, 2012  
Super portrait,they do look a little wary!!
May 3rd, 2012  
i agree with Ashley this pic is great but the girl is really standing out !! wow !!
May 3rd, 2012  
they mean business
May 3rd, 2012  
These three look to be quite the crew. Disgust, anger and aloof? Maybe just not quite sure of what to make of this hairy white man pointing a camera at us. :)
May 3rd, 2012  
Three such different expressions. All unique and very beautiful faces.
May 3rd, 2012  
You always post such great shots. You did a great job capturing the moment.
May 3rd, 2012  
They are clearly weighing you up! Wonderful expressions... :)
May 3rd, 2012  
Great group shot.
May 3rd, 2012  
I love everything about this shot.
May 3rd, 2012  
Wonderful photo, all three so completely different. The tall girl is a real stunner and so composed looking.
May 3rd, 2012  
Love this....they are so very grown up and serious...much more so than the photographer, one feels
May 4th, 2012  
@gailwf - the clothes on the line is a lovely homely touch :)

@alia_801 @tigerdreamer @netkonnexion - Yeah the expressions are interesting. I think they were caught between smiling and concentrating...

@michelle58 @nikond40x @ashleycampbell9 - The tall girl certainly has a natural charm... and sometimes that Melanesian hair in its natural form has its attraction. It was interesting to see the difference between the people depending on their environment.

@carolmw - nah, the hairy white guy is harmless enough... ;)

@chrisphoto2012 - Thanks Chris :)

@houdiniem - you mean compensation?

@geocacheking - Spot on Cameron!

@swguevin @hollandcrew @filsie65 - Thank you Sheila, thank you Al and thanks Phil :)

@beckys @michelleyoung @judithdeacon @swilde - Thank you ladies and yes I think you are correct Sue. :P
May 4th, 2012  
A great shot - really captures character Fav
May 4th, 2012  
What's with the furrowed brows? lol. The girl at the back is a beauty.
May 4th, 2012  
@yrhenwr - Cheers David, thank you so much.

@kareen - I'm not sure. There was more then one photographer there that morning, so the two girls at the front may be concentrating on which lens to look at... The model at the back knew exactly which lens to look too!
May 4th, 2012  
Cool triple portrait. Makes you wonder what thier three fates may be, not that Clotho, Lachesis and Atropos would determine them.
May 4th, 2012  
@robv - the one question that follows me and which underlies so many of my PNG shots, is that of their future. I will post a shot in September that chills me to my core. It is not a great shot, but it is a simple shot and to me, it defines that question. What lies ahead for this country and its beautiful people?
May 5th, 2012  
The girl in the back is gorgeous! Great group portrait :-)
May 6th, 2012  
@zuzana Thank you Zuzana, that is sweet of you to say so. :)
May 6th, 2012  
Mel
Wonderful expressions, your portraits are always so clear
May 6th, 2012  
@emjay8 - Thanks Mel, many of these portraits are taken with my 70-300mm telephoto lens, and it is a nice bit of kit. Nice and sharp!
May 6th, 2012  
i loooove how the sunlight is hitting their hair and the bridges of their nose. I agree with everyone else, the girl in the back.......so beautiful!!! really great shot!
May 8th, 2012  
@kdimagery - Thanks Kd, thank you :)
May 11th, 2012  
Three serious faces. The taller girl is stunning.
May 17th, 2012  
@kjarn - Isn't she just. I didn't notice it at the time, only when reviewing these photos did I notice it...
