As noted yesterday, my computer is dismantled for the time being while I work through some office reconfigurations, so today I’m sharing a few images that I have shared before. It’s just what caught my eye when looking through my media library, rather than a specific theme.
Here are a few images of Mom’s in the bush, all taken during my last trip to South Africa. Looking through my photos brings back such lovely memories, made even better by the fact that I experienced them with my Mom 🙂
I’m working on a guest post for a friend doing an Armchair safari series, and thought I would share the images here as well. I decided that the theme of my post would be sunrise to sunset on safari; showcasing images from dawn till dusk while out in the bush. These are all shot during my last trip to South Africa and were from all of the camps that I stayed at. I would have to plan a lot more in advance while out in the field to have a sunrise to sunset images from a single day (note to self, do that next trip!).
Rather than a highlight reel of amazing sightings, these are just a collection of moments out in the bush.
Happy Monday! I am super grateful that I was able to get my computer back out of sick bay this weekend, complete with a new SSD drive, so hopefully it’ll be running well for a couple more years (at least).
I got the computer back, but haven’t actually had an opportunity to do anything with it in terms of editing. Even with the system restore from a backup, there are little quirks that need to be addressed.
So here is a giraffe image I edited a few weeks ago and had ready to go. These two were part of a group of about 6-8 that were spread out amongst the acacia trees. We were on our way to check on a lion sighting from the previous day, so we didn’t spend too much time with these guys. Not that we needed to rush to the lions; they had barely moved since the previous day.
I’m focusing on photo art this month, and decided to start things off focusing on giraffes. The easily recognizable shape of a giraffe meant that no matter how far I took the editing, the shape of the animal would still be recognizable as a giraffe.
Since I don’t have any natural talents in drawing and painting, creating these painterly interpretations from the photographs that I take is my opportunity to set aside the need to keep an image looking realistic, and instead focus on what the image is saying to me.
I hope you like my selections for the week; check back next Sunday to see the next instalment.
