Robert and Kathy

Robert has appeared in my project before. He's a great guy and he has been lucky to travel outside of Papua New Guinea to do stuff that comes naturally to him. Nice bloke.

His daughter Kathy was just a toddler the last time I saw her, she was quiet then and she was quiet now. Spent a lot of time staring up at the Big Hairy White Guy.

We had a good afternoon walking through the mud, checking out the butterflies and seeing a new bird for me, a yellow billed Kingfisher and also seeing a flock of Raggiana Birds of Paradise, all flying around and chasing one another. A shame they were not in their breeding plumage but a blast to see the flashes of fox-red flying from tree top to tree top.

Photo taken up at Varirata National Park, Central Province on 27 January 2014.
I was gonna say, I got another sweeter photo of Robert holding his daughter's hand, but this one seemed so PNG to me, with his smiling for the camera yet saying to his daughter quite seriously "smile for the camera"...

This is a sweet shot

I like the easy casualness that conveys the warmth between father and daughter.

it's always refreshing to see shy and innocence all at once; the kid is similar to the kids in the rural areas here in the philippines. far cry from the know-it-all attitudes of most children where i live.

@summerfield - I am often reminded of my childhood where we knew what respect was and would only speak when spoken to. Before 24 hour television.
