Bula and Welcome to Fiji
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|Bula and Welcome!|
This is a welcoming billboard I saw as we were riding in the bus taking us to the port at Denarau, Nadi, Fiji. It sure does emphasise the smiles and friendliness of the Fijian children and the people of Fiji as a whole.
Bula! It's a word you hear many times a day in Fiji. It means "hello" and is pronounced either 'boola' or 'mboola'. Either way, it's always pronounced with a smile.
Fiji is the land of broad smiles, flashing white teeth, gentle relaxation and absolutely no stress. From the mainland island of Viti Levu to the islands you won't be able to escape the friendliness of the people or the sheer natural beauty - swaying palms and warm, clear water.

You give the day his smile! Good start.
Nice picture. Many of us wished to be there too.
Maybe a bit more contrast and colour?
Hello Janice.. as I see I am your second
Dutch admirerer .. Ninix was the first..
friends all over the world for you (*_*)
Photo .. as that is the main reason .. it is such a nice idea and I also agree with the same ninix .. a little more spicey sauce ( colors / contrast ?)
Tried a quick workshop.. hope we R still fiends
Funny - when I saw the thumbnail, I immediately thought of your billboard shot with the fresh bread sign, and that was even before I looked to see who the photographer was!
Good composition, and I really enjoy the muted or toned colors.
Lovely intro to this beautiful place. cheers
