I was walking around by Uluru (aka Ayer's Rock) and came upon these boys. They were trying to straighten the handlebars of the bike, but couldn't. I did it for them and then we started goofing around. As soon as I grabbed my camera, they began "posing" for me- all on their own.
Silly boys, we three .
Seven pics

Geeeez Charlie I really like your presentation here a lot. That is some nice B&W work buddy. Your range on darks here is interesting. What a couple of sinister looking jokers, they must have caught on to your character quickly

#6 might be my fav but I am enjoying the interactions you experienced.

Thanks, gentlemen.
Although in some respects assimilated into the "western" ways that now dominate Australia, I had only this contact with the Aboriginals in the month I was there. But at least it was a terrific fifteen or twenty minutes I had with these two best friends- both of whom lived in a village near Uluru.

Thanks Med and Cel.
Yes, the boys hammed it up after a couple of minutes- much to my appreciation.
