Landscape with Giraffes

Landscape with Giraffes

Late afternoon and the sun is getting lower, the shadows longer. Giraffes of all sizes are peaceably browsing the acacia trees, though aware of our presence. We must linger; the setting demands it.The immensity of the Serengeti and knowing that life here has changed little in millions of years is humbling. As idyllic a moment as I can recall.

God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things.

  1. Wonderful photo, as always, Ron. I am a big fan of giraffes. Love the Picasso quote. 🙂

    1. Thank you Cathy. It was a special moment for Lynne and me.

  2. Aiyo, Ron – that’s some timeless storytelling photograph! It could just as well be one of those fine ink lithographs found under fine tissue paper in an old book. Terrific. 🙂

    1. Thanks Meredith. That is what I was after with the processing.

  3. Wonderful Savanna mood. Monochrome is nice choice and very well done!!

    1. Thank you Vate. I liked the mono best too. Thanks for visiting.
