Somebody didn't want their photo taken. by bobfoto

Somebody didn't want their photo taken.

I mean really... dancing half naked in the streets with grass and feathers in your hair amongst a crowd of others, all celebrating and you get shy when the BHWG points a 300mm lens your way???

There was some good banter and acting between us two as I threatened to take her photograph and she continued to hide behind her hand. In the end, I took the shot and showed her the results and she roared with laughter and became even more embarrassed or shy...

I like how there is a peek of her eye between her fingers.

Photo taken last week at the Mona Festival, Buka, Bougainville.
Wonderfully captured expression. Fav!

her giggling, although partly hidden, is quite contagious. i laughed at the gesture even before i read the caption. just a happy albeit shy person, that she is!

I love the way she is peeking at you between her fingers, what a gorgeous giggly face she is hiding!

You've captured shyness perfectly. I love the emotion in this image.

@summerfield - it was such a lovely interplay between the two of us... and her friends weren't helping as they were willingly posing for the lens.

@judithdeacon - I never did get a shot of her from behind her hand, but I did get a big smile!

Oh wow, I didn't notice her eye until you said something. That makes the shot plus her big smile.

@tara11 - I didn't notice the eye until I checked it later on the PC.

Great to see such a big smile and a teeny bit of eye.
