Western Province Sing-sing

Just noticed I got my numbers wrong for August, so I had to go look for another shot, but seeing as you all liked yesterday's Western Province Sing-sing performer, I thought I would provide an encore seeing as it is so close to September!!!

Oh next month is going to be a big one... hope my typist is ready... Volcanos, Sing-sings, the Kokoda Track, Bensbach, Goroka and the SP Grand Final! Booyeah!

Bring it on.

Photo taken 30 August 2008

Great shot - love their paint and costumes. I wonder do they still take traditional pride in doing this or has it become a show for the tourists?
PS Don't tell me you've forgotten August 31st?!

@tkeen - Cheers Toni :)

@swilde @kjarn - Thanks Sue and Kathy A :)

@will_wooderson - I just got lucky to live in country for a short period...

@tonydebont - Oh the Sing-sings were the reason I purchased a DSLR.... my pns was letting me down a bit... but wait until September and Underpants Dai!

@megsy - thanks Megsy!

@jannaellen - How awesome would that be! I think if I were to go back, I reckon I will try to convince someone to get me trained up eh? My GF has a traditional Grass Skirt from the Motuan ladies!

@houdiniem - I know what you is saying.

@dalboy - I am so looking forward to it... I keep sneak peeking the shots in advance!

@filsie65 - Both. But pride is still massive. We had a lady who was our sometimes Hausmeri (Housecleaner) and just before she left, she asked my GF if she would photograph and perhaps paint her in her traditional costume. GF said on the day the Hausmeri was very quiet and restrained and had her GFs over to body paint her bare breasts and her face. It was a very solemn occasion and one that my GF could not participate in. An amazing day.

@alia_801 - Oh aren't they just!
