Every country has its fast food. Here in the food corner of the Goroka market in the Eastern Highlands of Papua-New Guinea in 1971 a woman sits beside her cooking equipment. I'm afraid that I don't remember exactly what she was cooking - some sort of fritter, perhaps taro based. In the background a man wears a red banded hat - given out by the "kiaps" (Australian patrol officers) as their appointed chiefs (they weren't necessarily real local chief though.

Very good results scanning the photo, to show a different reality we live in these parts.
Excellent document graphic!

40 years old and still so good. Just by curiosity, I tried to render the colors a little more natural (at least to me). I hope you don't mind the workshop to show you the difference.

Great to see your oldies from PNG - keep them up! A daily life scene from a country that is not over represented on TE. Your half frame slide has lots of detail. I can see a few defects but considering the age of the slide this is not surprising. I am guessing that you were working in PNG at this time. So close to Australia and yet most Aussies will never visit this country. I walked the Kokoda Track in 2005. Tfs, Marlene
