I say it over and over again because I think it almost every time I view your safari images... what a privilege you must feel to experience these up close encounters so often.
I have learned so much from your photos and narrative Eric, so thank you.
These are excellent for the reasons expressed in your introduction, the sense of community is quite obvious and enjoyable to see.
My favorites are 1, 2, 7, 9, and 10 (I would be tempted to crop in to just mother and cub as another option on #1)
Love your work Eric, thanks for sharing...Show more →
You are much too kind Kirk...and I've previously posted image #1 cropped to just mother and cub so you are right on point And yes, I never ever ever take for granted how lucky I am to see these guys and spend time with them. The sense of timelessness as it relates to Africa is omnipresent. What these animals do hasn't changed in thousands of years...and to witness it is almost like stepping back in time. How I wish I could go back in time to the days of Stanley and Livingston or Ernest Hemmingway (of course I would still have my digital SLR and malaria pills ) and see what the continent was like then. But there are still places that are unspoilt and that feeling can almost be replicated. When I stood under the baobab tree that Livingston lived under for two years it was very eerie. I am never as happy or at peace as when I am in Africa with my family.
Thanks again my friend for such kind words.
