A room in a derelict house in Agonda. I liked the way the coconut was sitting in a pool of light. The colours of the outside contrasted so well with the peaceful hues of the wood and the cocounts lined against the wall. It reminded me of an artists installation...yes, there was still life : ))

Another one of those beautiful memories from our trip. We were on our houseboat which was taking us across the backwaters of Kerala and the Sun was precarious for it absence throughout the day. I was pretty sad because as you know, without the Sun, everything feels so dull and boring :) but all of a sudden, just before the Sunset, it came out of the dark clouds and I jumped out of joy!


I captured a few shots with the Sun setting behind the cocount trees but then I got two more things into the frame, which made the same image look a million times better.

Brother bought a coconut

He bought it for a dime.

His sister had another

She paid it for a lime.


She put the lime in the coconut

And drank them both up.


Called the doctor, woke him up, and said

"Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take"

I say, "Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

I say, "Doctor ain't there nothing I can take"

I say, "Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"


Now let me get this straight;

You put the lime in the coconut

You drank them both up

You put the lime in the coconut,

You drank them both up

You put the lime in the coconut,

called your doctor, woke him up, and said,


"Doctor, ain't there nothing I can take"

I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"

I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take"

I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"


You put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both down,

You put the lime in the cocount, you're such a silly woman!

Put the lime in the coconut, and drink them both together,

Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning.

The shark calling is a ceremony that takes places in papua New Guinea and others islands like Vanuatu.

The hunter goes alone in the sea with a small pirogue. He shakes some coconuts to imitate the sound of wounded fishes, so the shark comes. Once the shark is around the boat, the hunter catches it thru a lasso (right picture). The lasso is also a malangan, a sacred tool for the tribe.

Once the shark is dead, the hunter blows a shell horn, and comes back as a hero to the village.

A BBC crew was there when i came too, they stayed 10 days trying to film the hunter and the shark, but they failed. The sharks are also hunted for their fins...less and less are remaining in the papua waters. Many fishermen are wounded when they try to catch the sharks...


Le shark calling consiste à aller en mer, à attirer un requin avec des noix de cocos qui imitent le bruit de poissons bléssés, puis de capturer le requin dans le lasso du malangan.

Ce rituel est effectué lors de diverses ceremonies. Ne pas ramener de requins est un très mauvais signe pour le village.
