Smiling lad of Boera by bobfoto

Smiling lad of Boera

Backlit by the sun, this shot beams in more than just his smile. It can be tricky not to get a complete silhouette when taking photos of Papua New Guineans against the sky or sun. But I squeezed a cool photo from this attempt.

The smiles continue.

Photo taken at Boera Village on 18 October 2008.
He's awesome.

Beautiful smile... I hope it's still beautiful in ten years.

@maggiemae @bella_ss - I sometimes see young men and women in the shopping centre nearby and they give me a stare and I give them a glance and I think "I wonder if they are from Boera?"... perhaps.

@swilde @grammyn @lynnb - The Motuan people do have a overall general good look to them.

@rvwalker - I think I was sitting under the house in the dark, so I had everything going against me.

@agentzuckerguss - Sorry Katia, but my next shot is not so smiley...

@carolmw - Thanks Carol :)
