Jason

Been really slack of late... camera mi les.

But I only have 2 maybe 3 pictures left of my project, so I'm making an effort by using someone else's photograph of me doing what I have been doing for the past 2014 edition of my project and that is taking photographs of Papua New Guineans... I've been reading stories of Hurley and Williams of late, one, an anthropologist first and photographer second and the other a photographer first and anthropologist second. Both saw service in World War One and both then travelled extensively through Papua post-war.

By no means do I liken myself to these great men, but some of the cool shots in their photography collections are of them in action, so I finish my 365 project with a shot or two of me, in action, by some of my photog friends.

Photograph by Dave over in Rabaul, watching Duk Duks on a hot steamy morning. (I didn't need the t-shirt underneath)
Fantastic shot!FAV*)

this is so cool, I just now watched a doco about the papua islanders, brought some of your past shots to life for me, to hear them sing and watch them dance... coolness. you actually appear quite at home and yet so distinct.
October 4th, 2014  
Well, hello there! Nice to see you in your element.
October 4th, 2014  
Fav! Kali is right, you appear so at home in this pic. I have always loved pics of photographers in their element. It's a recognition of their hard work and devotion to their craft. :)

This is terrific -- it's interesting to be able to see you surrounded by the people you have been photographing.
October 4th, 2014  
This is an awesome shot of you, Jason! What a great perspective! Fav!
October 4th, 2014

October 4th, 2014

October 4th, 2014  
wonderful shot of the BHWG in his element! So good to see you on the other side of the camera! FAV
October 4th, 2014  
Really good photo of you! You seem surrounded by an aura which could be in the processing and sets you slightly apart from the audience!

@katerinatina @kali66 @blueberry1222 @grammyn - Thank you Katterina, Kali, Krista and Katy, your lovely comments have put a smile on my face this morning. #:0D=

@houdiniem - whoop whoop!

@carrieoakey - I've been lucky in that as a product of my work, I get to immerse myself in my hobby!

@taffy - and as usual, I was captured without a smile... I must be a grumpy bugger?

@orangecrush - Cheers Jerry, I have one or two more shots like this.

@trishaclancy - Thanks Trisha, thank you for the fave!

@jo13 - Thanks Jo, I think it were a Canon that captured me...

@mzzhope - I could have been smiling?

@summerfield - I did sneak around and get a few shots of the crowd, it made them smile which helped because I think I may have blocked the view for some of the kiddies???

@carolmw - Thanks Carol :)

@maggiemae - Fairly bright morning light from behind me which would add to my haloesque appearance?
October 4th, 2014  
I love it, Jason! I am glad you have shared your journey with us these past four years. This is a must fav for me.
October 5th, 2014  
Pretty awesome.
October 5th, 2014  
Now I was going to say what a great shot but you didnt take it.... good to see you in a place where you clearly feel comfortable.
October 5th, 2014  
@cjwhite - You are welcome Carolyn, thanks for being part of the journey!

@amandal - Why thank you Amanda :)

@agima - the next shot in the series, I was a little sweaty but..
October 5th, 2014  
Your project was a ride to follow (when I did). Your presence on 365, the quirky fun you bring, and showing us this remote and amazing part of the world...it will be missed. Neat to see you in action and how it looks from the other side. Take care, old friend.
October 5th, 2014  
btw what is your work exactly I couldn't work that out ....
October 5th, 2014  
@amandal - it was a pleasure to share this relatively unknown but rather large island with you. Hopefully a few people around the globe will opt to stay on Discovery channel for a bit whenever they hear PNG gets a mention???

@kali66 - as little as possible or as little as I can get away with...
October 5th, 2014  
@bobfoto lol that is as brief an answer as you could get away with..
October 5th, 2014  
@kali66 - I've practised that answer before...
October 5th, 2014  
Great to see you here, Jason. Hope you decide to do another 365 project. Your shots always bring on an attack of nostalgia for me.
October 6th, 2014  
Terrific shot of you, Jason! I've enjoyed your photos so much - you will be missed! I hope you'll choose to post occasionally, just for old time's sake.
Fave! ;)
October 6th, 2014  
This is fantastic! Such a great shot with all the kids in the background. fav
October 6th, 2014  
@girlie - Thanks Robin, likewise, your garden shots make me pine for home.

@juliedduncan - Thanks for the fave Julie... I have one or two more shots left and a few selfies to go before I call it a day... will also post to the fcbks.

@bella_ss - I think I blocked the view for some of the poor small kiddies.... :(
October 6th, 2014  
this is an amazing photo of you Jason.
October 7th, 2014  
@luvthyclassics - thanks Jesse, but I look grumpy.... and I smile a lot!
October 8th, 2014  
Great shot Jason. Nice to see you. Fav
October 8th, 2014  
@shepherdmanswife - Thanks! And thank you for the fave :)
October 8th, 2014  
Love this a fav!

@leananiemand - Thanks Leana :)

Nice lens, by the way. Is that thing at the end really useful? I rarely (if ever) use mine. Have maybe once or twice. Mostly it's just falling off and rolling away.
October 11th, 2014  
@amandal - I use it for lens protection. Mine fits on nice and snug and when I'm in a festival crowd, you can get a little caught up amongst the people, so to avoid fingers and stuff touching the lens, I leave the hood on. Worked for me so far.
October 12th, 2014  
@bobfoto Do you lose light?
October 12th, 2014  
@amandal - I find it removes the excess light that comes in from where you don't want it. The only light you want is what is reflective off your focus point. Not ambient light coming in from the sides...
October 12th, 2014  
@bobfoto I will have to experiment. A shot with and without and see. Thanks.
October 12th, 2014  
Fantastic shot.
October 12th, 2014  
@edie - Thanks Edie :)
October 13th, 2014  
Fabulous image, you amongst the people you so clearly have great empathy with,. I know it's not your photo but it's still a FAV with me!
October 13th, 2014  
@judithdeacon - thanks Judith, thank you for the fave :D
October 13th, 2014  
Fabulous shot, fav! Whats wrong with your arm?
November 15th, 2014  
@kjarn - carpal tunnel has finally collapsed.
November 15th, 2014  
Just having a visit to 365 and I am loving all your shots. I've missed all this! I just love all your pictures, but this is my favourite. I know you didn't take it, but it tells your story.

@windridge - Thanks Susan, I do like the backlit hair in this shot!
