That Guy of Matupit at Tavurvur

He gave me some good pointers. Nice bloke, another in a long line of volcano keepers.

Photo taken 23 June 2013 at the base of Tavurvur, Rabaul, ENBP.

Jason -- you really must do a "Humans of New Guinea" project! You are so masterful in capturing and depicting a sense of person.

@jyokota - there already is a HOPNG on the facebooks. But I will add, my portrait series here started well before theirs...

@blueberry1222 - I have another shot of him pointing at the Volcano.

@bobfoto Well done! i don't know how to do that with only part of the image!

@grammyn - I've got a little button that says "avoid skin tones" so I can de-saturate greens and blues. I do it a bit to help add feel to some of my shots.

Handsome and dignified portrait of him. A volcano keeper sounds like a very dangerous job.

@olivetreeann - it does when they go off and it did today whilst I was trying to undertake my day's duties.... bugger of a thing.
