110 JULY-AUGUST 2018 | THE FOREIGN SERVICE JOURNAL LOCAL LENS BY GERGANA BATKOVA n PORT MORESBY, PAPUA NEW GUINEA Please submit your favorite, recent photograph to be considered for Local Lens. Images must be high resolution (at least 300 dpi at 8” x 10”, or 1 MB or larger) and must not be in print elsewhere. Include a short description of the scene/event, as well as your name, brief biodata and the type of camera used. Send to locallens@ . I call this picture “Diving Suzie’s Bommie.” Just 15 kilometers from Port Moresby, and only 30 minutes from Loloata Resort, Suzie’s Bommie is one of my favorite dive sites in Papua New Guinea. It is hard to believe that such good diving can exist so close to a capital city, but when the conditions are right, Suzie’s Bommie offers world-class diving! n Gergana Batkova is an FS family member at Embassy Port Moresby. She and her husband are passionate divers and underwater photographers, so they feel very lucky to be posted to Papua New Guinea. She took the photo on May 10 with an Olympus TG-TRACKER, 1.60mm, 1/100 sec at f/2.0, ISO 160.
