Dominic of Simbu

Throughout this year's project, it was my intent to post a portrait of someone from each of Papua New Guinea's 22 Provinces and if I have got it correct, this should be the 22nd.

I got carried away with all the headdresses and make-up of late.

Simbu or Chimbu Province high up in the mountains of PNG was my last province to get to, so only fitting I post this photo of Dominic, my guide and security sitting on a bush seat half way up PNG's highest mountain; Mt Wilhelm.

Dominic was a great guy and he made an awesome cup of tea. Nambawan brand of course.

Photo taken 11 November 2008 up on the side of Mt Wilhelm, Simbu Province (22/22)
He looks really chilled out:-)

@carolmw @grammyn - I was huffin' and puffin' and for him it was a stroll in the woods!

@stimuloog - this was the amazing view of where I sat and drank my tea. http://365project.org/bobfoto/365/2012-11-19

@blueberry1222 @taffy @rach_who - he made climbing the mountain at altitude look easy!

@swilde - he was a good guy!

@summerfield - he was wearing Dunlop KT-26ers which are a very popular brand of runners here in PNG. Blue with a silver flash down the side.

@houdiniem - got another shot of him carrying his bushknife in one hand, a big aluminium kettle in the other and a tree balanced on his shoulder. For firewood.

@nataliemac - Thanks Nat. It wasn't a goal at first, but I think after 6 months, work had dragged me to 13 provinces, so I figured the rest were easy!

I'll bet he would struggle getting a great photo so we all have our strengths. @bobfoto
