Faces of Bougainville: Lonesome by the Strait

Jessie T. Ponce Photography

“Lonesome by the Strait”; Autonomous Region of Bougainville; Papua New Guinea; December 2012

We were already on a boat on Buka Passage and ready to head for Sohano when I noticed this boy quietly watching us.  He looked lonely but did respond when I waved at him after taking a photo.
