Photographer's Note

Dear TE friends, I am posting a photo of sea Bajau children here on a boat off Maiga Island, titled Proudly a sea Bajau, because they all seem very happy and content with life at this place. And they are a proud group of people, friendly, innocent. The color tone of the kids are so strong that I find difficulty trying to show details of skin texture, but that really does not matter for me, as I find their smiles and happiness more important in this shot.

Imagine this for the islanders' lives on the island
.no school
.no dress code
.no rules
.no money transactions
.everyday is free and holiday when you feel like it
.do they need education?
.do they need money?

Remember, the kids have no papers or certificates of birth. Just a human being living on an island. But that does not bother anyone here on the island. It is the way of life. Every child born knows how to swim. And I will post later, another kid photo for you to compare, and see what is your reaction to 2 different world.

Thank you for viewing. Regards, Bill

p/s After 2 days spent on islands, I began to look like a sea Bajau with my dark tan! :)
