Default Aboriginal Day in Tuk

The DL with the 28-105 was with me today fo Aboriginal Day, here is a sample from the day's events:
First two images are from the tea boiling competition, start a fire and boil water to make tea as fast as you can. The mother and daughter team shown won.
The child is wearing a traditional fur outfit.
The last two show the fish cutting competition for the men and the overall winner (who also won the women's division).

Nice series Ira..gives a flavor (no pun intended) to life in Tuk! I like #2--the flames from the fire are captured perfectly. Great images from your DL!

Great series Ira!

That little girl is just adorable.

The last "action" shot is very dynamic. Great capture of her expression (and the curious one beside her.)

And the 2nd last, is my favourite. Perfectly tells the story. And the angle of the table really drew me in. And I love the framing with the people!

Take care,
Glen

Wonderful series! Its fascinating to see what local festivals use for competition - are lighters allowed in the tea making competition? What a very cool thing to be able to get a glimpse into the lives of people living in a totally different world than the sprawling urban blight I see every day. And it's for-real, not tourist make-believe.

Harriet

Lighters are allowed but you are not allowed to prepare the wood and cardboard that is provided (one team was caught cheating by tearing up the cardboard before the time began, they had to start over).

There were actually two tourists at the event, a couple of ladies from Israel looking to see a very different environment.

An interesting look at a different part of the world. It makes me wonder what other images I've missed being gone so long.

I love the little child. And, the action in the last shot is great.

I love all these photos Ira. The child in the fur outfit is absolutely adorable, and the photo of the mother-daughter team in the first photo is really captivating.
