Kekeni animase bilong Abau Sing SIng

I do like trying to get a second or third or fourth performer in the background to try and a depth of colour and stop some dude in a t-shirt or some motor vehicle messing up my background. I like this one for the disdain look and the backlit feathers.

Photo taken a day or so ago at Constitutional Park, Port Moresby.
The backlit feathers are the best. DOF and colorful "others" are better than dude, but a biker dude could be cool. :)

So much colours! :) And that expression is priceless!

You've definitely captured a fabulous portrait here.

@dh @amandal @agentzuckerguss @aj1268 - starting with the headpiece, the yellow, black, red and white wool would have once been traditional fibre, but that is left now for the grass skirts of the same colours. She then has radiating feathers of lorikeet and cockatoo (trimmed) which have been wound with red wool and stuck into the top. The small circles are tiny clam shells with an overlay of carved turtleshell, but plastics are replacing these...

'tis sad about plastic replacing all those beautiful ornaments, but then we have depleted our earth with our natural resources. as usual, i love how you've captured that expression of 'disdain' but i would guess she gave you a smile right after.

@summerfield - talking with a new-found friend at the festival who has researched sea turtles in the Pacific, it would appear that we are on the brink of losing them forever, and not just because of human harvesting for meat and ornaments. A 1ÂșC increase in water temps and sand temps could mean an entire generation of turtles would be born of the same sex...

And no, she didn't give me a smile... I think this was a rare occasion when she had had enough of the attention and she just wanted to go home.
