Samoan Girls Practicising Dance Routine

These Samoan girls were practising their steps for their upcoming performance at Pacifika when I caught them with my camera.

Their smiles were so sweet that I decided to turn the plumeria and hibiscus flowers behind their ears into a shower of blessings.

Hi Vanessa,

So nice to hear from you. I'm glad you finally found where your photo came from. I didn't know my photo had appeared in any papers. I took the picture when you and your friends were warming up at the side of a tent. You probably don't remember me doing it as you were all so focused on your practice.

If you don't mind helping me track down some of the people in some of the other photos, could you email me at john@photographybyjohncorney.com? You might know some of them and I have been asked to grant permission to publish their photos in some social studies books here in the U.S. but I have had to say no to the publishers as I need their permission first. It would be great if you can help me get in touch with them. Anyhow, if you can help, please send me an email.

Thanks!

John
