Coconut lamp and hands

Coconut lamp and hands
Copyright ©2010, Jim Padget
Viewed times

While spending time on Savaii island with an elderly Samoan friend, the electricity went off. She wasn't bothered - just made a lamp from a coconut in the traditional way. The wick is made from a piece of coconut frond with some cloth wound around it. The lamp runs on coconut oil - clean burning and pleasant smelling. Our friend is sitting in the traditional way, cross-legged on a hand-woven mat.

Low light

Exceptional color and sharpness for such a low light environment. Tripod (y/n)? Image Stabilization (y/n)?

Thank you for the kind words. Yes, used a tripod, but without image stabilization, as if I use image stabilization with the tripod, it results in unsharp photos! One of the few faults of an otherwise very nice camera.
Thanks again for your comment.
