Me and my friends spent some days in Tessin (Switzerland). One day,while we ate dinner, the sun began to turn the landscape golden. We immediately left the dining room and ran out of the hut to catch sunset. In this picture you can see one freind, jumping from one stone to another in order to reach the perfect spot at the right time.

This photo was taken at the Sing Sing Festival in Mt. Hagen, Papua, New Guinea. As one of these tribal ladies danced past the other, I caught this lucky juxtaposition.
