Little Ladies of Lebogoro

This was a while ago during a good day down Rigo way just off the Magi Highway. Not too many roads in Papua New Guinea so it was a little bit of fun to get out for a drive.

Photo taken 19 June 2007 at Lebogoro Village, Central.
seeing photos like this reminds me greatly of my surroundings growing up in manila. my neighbourhood was so much like this because it used to be a farm before it was expropriated in the name of urban expansion and sold to those who could afford it on a lot by lot basis. yes hard to imagine farms in the city. but evertime i go back i don't see my old neighbourhood anymore. these girls remind me of neighbourhood kids, shoeless and all, and even though they would never see their pics, they loved being photographed by strangers. your photos always stir childhood memories for me. thank you.

Another great shot - they look really happy - much happier than English kids with XBOX's and Playstation's!!

@summerfield - Port Moresby is now using words like urban expansion but also words like illegal land grabbing. This population is about to explode. I'm happy that I bring back fond memories for you Summerfield :)
