Last November I found myself lucky enough to travel to Papua New Guinea for field research in the Coral Sea. I wouldn’t say that I visited Papua New Guinea having only stayed in the city of Port Moresby for a few days, but I did get to drive around the city, visit the university campus and watch a rugby game between local teams.

    very nice. my favorite is the last one of the boats, but i really like all of them -- especially when the billboards are background for the action in the forefront.

  2. Good pics, I think you capture some of these children especially well. They are so expressive and interesting. Looks like an interesting place.

  3. I like the shot with the boats too, and the children are magical! Don't quite get restaurant though.


  4. Thanks. It was a really calm morning when we left the harbor and made for especially cool viewing of all the boats.

    p.s. They were (evidently) very proud of that restaurant.
