How a weirdo sees the world…

Photography

22-creative-engagement-shoot-bike-vintage-cameraPhotography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving. What you have caught on film is captured forever. . . it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.” – Aaron Sussman

A photograph can capture reality as objectively as nothing else can. A moment frozen in time that you can revisit as often as you like.

On this page, I will post photos that I find are meaningful, interesting or beautiful.

 

 

I took the following pictures when I went to Kenya. The beautiful creatures I encountered, made our advances in technology, our complaints about increasing prices and the little problems of our daily life seem meaningless. The same feeling of insignificance I get when looking into the night sky or over the vast ocean overcame me when travelling through the wildlife parks in Kenya.

DSCF4335… they do not seem to understand anything about traffic rules, not even the British.

DSCF4321Elephants seem to do better in this kind of thing: at least they are walking in line. They would fit in the British queuing system quite neatly.
DSCF4483Well, that’s what elegance looks like! You ladies, with your tight leopard patterned leggings and shirts, you will never look anywhere near as sexy as this boy does!

DSCF4516There you have it guys, even the water has to breath from time to time!

DSCF4631What a beautiful and proud cat. Who didn’t want to have one of those when they were young? I would have given anything, but my mother said it was too dangerous…
DSCF5070That was it for now. Take all the turned backsides as a hint: you should leave now.  😛

    Interesting to see you Kenya photos…we had a September trip planned for the Serengeti etc finishing at Mt. Kilimanjaro. Guides cancelled at Christmas in favour of Kruger. Still going…can’t wait to see these sites ourselves.

      It’s beautiful! The best thing I ever did!
      My advice to you: Pack suncream, mosquito spray and enough batteries for you camera! 🙂

        I think we have the batteries covered, but it’s nice to receive the other two suggestions from someone who has been there. Thank you.

      Me too! Was really lucky that I got it. I think the hippo only surfaced two or three times in that place.

    Was visiting your site and found my comment above. It is now just over two months since we arrived back from Africa….and we loved it. So much that it looks like we may return in 2014.
