5 Green Guys from Rabaul Sing SIng

I think the modernisation of the traditional is inevitable. As new products become available and natural dyes and ochres get lost and prizes awarded to the best dressed and imagined, then these 5 boys from the volcano will become the future of the sing sing in Melanesia.

I wonder if they know the white dots on a black stripe is distinctly Trobriand?

Photo taken yesterday at Constitutional Park, Port Moresby.
Fun shot -- especially since they are clearly having a great time.

@taffy - they loved the attention of the cameras and this pose was for a young Papua New Guinean girl who was delightfully pretty and holding up her phone camera and asking these young boys to pose... didn't they just love it! And I think she was getting a kick too!

@houdiniem - hee hee hee.

@snackmaster - well played sir.

@kali66 - these guys loved the attention! Natural Born Performers.

@swilde - do you think there is a secret Martian base deep inside the volcano?

@blueberry1222 - oh Krista, read above my reply to @taffy - these guys were posing for a young lady and her phone camera.

And I firmly believe to get a good portrait you must start with a good subject. And a good willing subject which Papua New Guineans at a festival are a great place to start!

@fricka - there was the real energy of youth with the playfulness between these boys and the pretty girl. They were luck putty in her hands!

@agentzuckerguss - Junior hulks!
