Photographer's Note

The door to the Co-op store in Dillon's Bay on the island of Erromango in Vanuatu. I arrived with a small group at the Dillon's Bay airport to find not a single person here, not even a spectator. The Australian pilot gave us a knowing grin & wished us good luck before taking off. Our transport, the only vehicle in Dillons Bay, arrived after a hour & half - to profuse apologies. Evidently they had had a puncture on the way out. Dillon's Bay is little visited, yet it was here that the Missionary John Williams was killed & eaten by the locals in 1839. Incidently the islanders formally apologised to William's great-great-grandson in 2009.

The small Co-op store was not open when I took the photo - on Fujichrome slide film - but I rather liked the colours. Photo has been digitised.
