I decided to try and get some pictures of the local kids here in Honiara, Solomon Islands.

So I have been carrying my camera everytime I work and taking shots when and where I can. Here are a couple that I feel are worthy of displaying to my friends here on the forum.

This one is called David and he is 7 months old, big eyes..!

Boys will be boys and the minute you go to shoot one, all his mates get in the act they start showing off. Oh Well....

This is the most popular boy in his village (now), he has a pet, well he wasn't popular until we showed an interest and I starting taking his pics.

Then everybody wanted to be his friend. Not sure why he stares at me like this, maybe he wanted to remain anonymous in his village and I just blew his cover.

Wonderful, expressive pictures that captures well the Melanesian influence in the Solomons. The boy and his bird are classic

Hi Crash

Great Shots. I really like number 2 the best. Regarding The third Shot, I think you are Correct. You Blew his cover :lol:

Crashman! Good to see you are still alive and well. Really like that 3rd shot. I wish I could shoot street photography shots like that. What lens did you use?

The first two were with a Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, the last was with my trusty Pentax M SMC 50mm f/1.7.

This one was two days ago with the 50mm F1/7 at f/3.5, 1/125sec ISO200
I was going to crop it but I decided the father's grizzly beard sort of adds to the softness of the baby.

These people love being photographed and just beam when they see themselves in your camera, the quickest way to get mobbed by kids is to start showing pictures of them.

These are wonderful, Crash.

I'd crop the last a tad to the left, to emphasize the contact between son and father a little more.

Love the last one - the father adds to the picture. I do agree that cropping a bit from the left side would help. All of them are wonderful!
