Young Man of Tufi

Re-visiting my Christmas holiday in Tufi. Great fun trip and I got some great photos.

Em tasol.

Photo taken at Tufi, Oro Province.
This is an extraordinarily crisp portrait photo of a guy I would think aged about 15/16? A challenging expression!

Another great shot!

Impressive image with the costume, his nonchalant expression, and the greenery.

Nice portrait

@maggiemae - Thanks Maggiemae, I took a bit of saturation out of the greenery so that he would appear sharp and pop out of the background. I'd say a little younger than that.

@chris17 - Thanks Christine :)

@taffy - Sago Palm in the background, good for a starchy food source.

@aurorajane - Thanks Aurorajane :)

Fabulous portrait. What's with the paper bag hanging around his neck?
August 10th, 2014  
He's fabulous. Love his look

@nataliemac - that's a large slice of shell.

@swilde - Thanks Sue!

Brilliant portrait shot....he looks so serious.

Even though I see these shots of yours daily and have been doing so for ages now it's still hard to realise they're living like this *actually right now* while we're all here with our fancypants cars and computers and, well, clothes.

a very engaging image.

urm..can you take the photo already, I'm bored of posing!

@leestevo - he looks a little bored to me... I think @houdiniem got it right.

@eyebrows It is interesting... this particular village has a deal with the local resort to "dress up" and put on a bit of a "how life was" kinda show. But for these people where Pig Hunting and Sago are a way of life, the difference between this shot and the next day when the tourists were not around, was the shells and the Tapa cloth. Tomorrow this lad would be wearing shorts but still helping with the community harvest.

@blueberry1222 - Thanks Krista :)

Such a serious look!

@bobfoto OH! Sorry looked like a small paper bag to me.
August 11th, 2014  
@grammyn - bored me thinks.

@nataliemac - if it were a paper bag, I could claim that maybe he had some nuts inside?
August 11th, 2014  
@bobfoto LOL! it goes with the age!
August 11th, 2014  
@grammyn - bet he wished he was back playing his coconut nintendo?
August 13th, 2014  
@bobfoto Lol! I am sure!

Such an interesting cross between "what we used to do" and "how we still do it". But I guess it is revenue for them that helps.

@olivetreeann - I wonder what they do with the cash?
August 15th, 2014  
Can't decide if that's a proud look or a teenager look..!
August 16th, 2014  
Proudeenger?
August 16th, 2014  
Handsome boy, love the shells
