PNG Portraits, etc. – Part 2

a PNG village

Three kids while away their time under the shade of trees. Temperatures in this place can rise to up to 40 degrees Celsius.

Papua New Guinea, November 2014: Travelling to remote villages along the Fly River in Western Province, the savannahs and rubber plantations of Central Province, and the shores of Bougainville; I’ve taken lots of photos not only of local landscapes (most of them already posted here) but also of people, mostly of children, in their usual chores in their villages.  I have recently returned to PNG and am already accumulating more photos but decided to first publish the left-overs from my previous trip. This is the second installment of a two-part series of galleries, featuring random shots in black and white or sepia.
