Snorkeling Kaibara

I did post a shot of a young Tolai lad who was swimming on the same reef, catching tiny fish, but here you get another version.

How cool is this young dude with his swimming goggles and blonde surfer hair?

I apologise for the angled horizon.

Photo taken 5 May 2013 at Kaibara, Rabaul, East New Britain, Papua New Guinea.
Look at that adorable face! Love it! Who cares if the horizon is a bit tilted! Adds character and interest to the shot! Rules are made to be broken, after all! ;)

Brings back memories of being a kid at the old swimming hole. A cool environmental portrait.

i prefer a wonky horizon, it means you were more in the moment than looking for perfection

A real cool dude!! :D And a real cool shot!

I was so focused on those interesting swimmers I would never have noticed the horizon! Love that fabulous blond hair

@juliedduncan - I was pretty happy with how clear his goggles remained... often shots in water and humidity makes for fogged up goggles. Happy with the result here!

@iwatts - The little TG-1 does a good job with water.

@rvwalker - you should have seen the size of the little fish they were catching!

@houdiniem - I was too busy keeping my head above water to care about the horizon...

@agentzuckerguss - Thanks Katia, the water was warm though!

@grammyn - Its a great thing about the Tolai people and their blonde characteristic.

@carolmw - Thanks Carol.

This is fantastically wonderful. Just amazing portrait.

Big, big FAV!

He is cool...those goggles look so tight ...must be to keep the water out!
