#tbt: Quiver trees, Namibia

On the 2nd of July, 2012, I arrived at a quiver tree forest in Namibia. When I stood there, the sun was about to sunk. On the way to the forest, I thought that it's going to be too late but after taking the shot I knew that I always have to try to catch those moments, even though it seems to be far away.




Good Morning Topi!

View On Black

Continuing with the landscape theme of the week, here is another one!

This photo happened in a bit of a daze to be honest. One morning at the Masai Mara, I was observing a pride of lions in all their glory. Typically I went totally shutter crazy and completely forgot to look around. When I paused, I saw this and took the photo hurriedly from our moving vehicle. As soon as I took it though, it became one of my instant favourites.

I wonder what this Topi is doing all alone in the middle of the day. Usually they travel in herds and rest in shade during the sunny periods. I know he is unusually alert, as there are lions nearby. And lions are known to kill even if they are not hungry, just for fun. The photo also has some other common inhabitants of the savannah – the vultures. Can you spot them on the tree?




Teaching Her the Macarena || Ghana

Ekumfi Obidan, Ghana - My fellow volunteer Suzie took it upon her self to teach this young teenager the Macarena. By the time we left, I think all of the village children knew how to do the Macarena.

Savannah Denizens

The savannah is just as beautiful in colour as it is in black and white. The amount of biodiversity in this region is astounding whether it is the flora or the fauna.

stop and see

I think it is natural to take a step back and rethink, step back and look at the big picture.
and maybe then decide.
life is a flow, sometimes it is not good to oppose it . At the moment I think my life is going very smooth, yet my thoughts are all over the place. I think it is time to stop and sort few things out
and am talking about my photography
