Yamdena Island - part 9

Posted by
Stephen (Canberra, Australia) on 24 September 2012 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

I am on the sandy streets of Matakus - a fishing village on an islet offshore from the main island of Yamdena.

In this shot, you can see one of the murals I found on some of the houses in the village.

Yamdena is one of 65 islands in the Tanimbar group. These islands lie between the Arafura Sea and Banda Sea.

Wonderful portrait of these three Stephen! Your series makes me wonder how different it must be to grow up somewhere like this compared to the modern urban society where pretty much anything you want is available.

There is so much to see and enjoy in this frame: the kids, mural, brightly painted door, rusty corrugated roof, and laundry drying. An excellent photo.
