These photos are not black and white. The coral on the shore is all grey.
The “Technicolor” living reef that lies just beyond the beach under those waves turns into building materials for islanders who constantly battle the fact that their island is little more than piles of coral from the reef and plants. Most of the houses are on stilts to stay out of the water. It seems sort of like an island that sits a few feet beneath the surface of the ocean.
Here is another self-timer portrait. They’re turning out quite good so far.
Just some plants with waves in the background.
