Behind mum's mad head carrying skills is a little boy making sure we aren't the boogie men he's been told so much about. Chimanimani, Zimbabwe. This is one of my fave shots in Africa so far.
I know hair should not define a woman but its hard not to think it does after seeing the girls from the Himba tribe in Namibia. They mould their hair encased in clay and then tease the bottom edged to make this amazing caramel cached locks. Its amazing as is the rest of their dress. This young lady was showing us the "smoking" ceremony and while the photo isn't exactly crisp it does capture her stunning beautyl
The locals called Vic Falls, "The Smoke That Thunders" and this photo to me shows EXACTLY what that means. Everyone always posts pics of the water storming over the falls but this one to me, IS Victoria Falls. Its loud, its wet and from this view it really does look like smoke.
This weeks Photo Of The Week is an elephant having a mud bath on the Chobe River. What are the chances of seeing that?? It was so incredible and if you listen you can hear us all groan in conjunction with him when he gets down.
Despite some very real concerns about crocs, we bit the bullet and swam in the Okavango Delta. OMG - amazing experience which was probably heightened by the raging adrenelin (did I mention there are crocs) but none the less - stunning day.
Pejush spends a lot of his time composing the perfect photo of whereever we are. This pic of him at Dune 45 seemed perfect to honor his dedication to his photography. We miss you Pejush and hope to see you again one day.
Nothing specia photography wise about this pic but I'M BACK ON THE TRUCK HEADING NORTH!! WOOP WOOP!!
I have been so very fortunate with the animals in South Africa but this photo of a White Lion mid mane shake is absolutely my fave so far. I love that his mane is blurred but the look on his face is so sweet. So very fortunate.
The Mandela Capture Site is something that I wasn't expecting to get much out of, however it surprised me in the quality of the information in the museum and the honesty of that info. By far however the best part was this amazing sculpture of Mandela's face. From front on you see this, but alter your view slightly and its just a bunch of metal bars stuck in the ground. Very very clever.
After Kruger, we didn't expect a lot from Hluhluwe Imfolozi national park. Not because there isn't anything to see, we just thought we had been so very fortunate in Kruger that we wouldn't have that luck twice. Turns out we are the wildlife whisperers...
This young Giraffe calf spent a good 20 minutes checking us out. She kept coming closer to the jeep, checking where mum or dad was and then freaking out and sprinting back (yes I saw a running Giraffe again), only to slowly creep back towards us.
She was so cute and so inquisitive and to be amongst a herd of Giraffes for half an hour was extremely surreal. This was a day of babies but this adorable girl stood out.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
