Varirata Waterhole

Two shots left in this Leap Year so I offer this shot of this young Papua New Guinean lad leaping into the water. The kids here were loving this, but they all got extra enthused when they saw the hairy white guy taking photos.

One more shot to go.

Photo taken 29 December 2007

@sam_cr @maggiemae - the water colour was always a bit on the brown side.... I did go for a dip under some rapids just around the corner and it was very refreshing!


@agentzuckerguss - I had a shot of his friend who had more action, but it was his cheeky grin that got this shot!

@abbydooby @cookie123 @swilde @daisy @grammyn - Thanks ladies :D

@angelamartel - ahh these photos and this project have brought back some wonderful memories for me :D

@mandyj92 - Yeah I'm not a big fan of leaping into something I cannot see the bottom of, but these kids showed no fear!

@steveh - I think they just loved being the centre of attention. Such a care free group of people, even the grown-ups used to crack a smile, except for that grumpy one up at Enga, she was surly.... but that's another story.
