Mifala blong Vanuatu
Tanna (Tah)
"Mifala blong Vanuatu" means "We are from Vanuatu" in the strange bislama language, the lingua franca we use to communicate with everyone, knowing te archipelago is a babel of dialects.

 Celle-ci me rappelle une des premières photo que j'ai prise lors de mon arrivée à Mumbay.le regard du chauffeur de taxi dans le retro à 1h du matin. Fascinant de croiser ce type de regard. J'imagine que tu ne faisais le fier dans cette voiture et à cette vitesse ;o) !
Hello Luko,
Excellent ! Le vert, le regard qui tue, le cache sexe Vanuatu :) ... c'est superbe pour moi. Photo vibrante. Bravo.
I woukd have liked to see this more clean, less processed....what's shown however is visualy very interesting. The flag, the driver's look and the motion all make this a very nice image indeed
So yes, the intensity is definately there. Those eyes, burning eyes. What I do feel is that you have bumped the saturation a bit too much. That green is bleeding into everything; his face showing hints of a green tinge. I don't mind the color bleed in some photos, but the area that retains natural color must be large enough to hold the attention of the viewer; here, I'm not sure that's the case. The photo is good, I just think the processing is off a little.
 This one is all abut the blurry GREEN and all that I imagine it represents for you, and the intense, "tribal" intensity of the driver's eyes. Great atmosphere here, man - I'm in!
 Luko: it's been a long time - spectrally long to employ a term Conrad might've hit on. Eerie, gloomy greens and a headlong rush into the jungle, appropriate for your theme. I'm just back after a year or two hiatus myself, from the abyss.
Vanautu on the move.  And now it's sinking, I understand.  Fantastic moment of initmacy here married that omnipresent cliché gesture of nationalism -- the flag hanging from the cabbie's rearview mirror.
