Africa – Stuck in Customs

Cute Kid on the Beach in Madagascar

Daily Photo – Cute Kid on the Beach in Madagascar

The kids along the beach there were totally incredible! They loved seeing someone with a camera and would not stop posing. The kids reminded me a lot of my daughter Scarlett… who sees a camera then just starts performing left and right. I don’t know where certain kids get that from, but I think it’s amazing. I see a lot of that from “grown-ups” at Burning Man who are able to re-engage their inner child.

Deanie’s a hit in Africa

Daily Photo – Deanie’s a hit in Africa

Wow those Africans really like them some Deanie action. She was the center of attention at a fun village party in Zimbabwe. They just couldn’t get enough of that Deanie. After this guy hugged her, he ran back to all his friends and they high-fived him… we were all cracking up 🙂

Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

Daily Photo – Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe

It’s hard to believe I shot this when the waterfall was in low-flow mode! They say that’s actually the best time to go there because in max flow season, the spray is so intense that you can just barely even see the waterfall. The spray was still pretty intense and as we walked around, everyone got pretty soaked anyway… I had to keep drying off my lens between shots…

Schoolkids at the Village Party

Daily Photo – Schoolkids at the Village Party

While in Zimbabwe, we were treated to a cool celebration and party at the local village. These two came out and they recited some poetry for us. I thought they had super-expressive faces so I quickly grabbed this photo.

Male Lion in the Wild

Daily Photo – Male Lion in the Wild

How cool are lions? These male lions are particularly cool looking, even though they spend most of the day doing almost nothing. I seriously think they nap about 20 hours a day, so I was lucky to see this guy. He was basically simply walking from one nap location to the next!

Elephants Marching Across Zimbabwe

Daily Photo – Elephants Marching Across Zimbabwe

This photo is made from about four different photos. I couldn’t quite get the exact photo I wanted at the resolution I desired with a single shot, so I zoomed in to get a variety of shots to stitch together later. If you zoom in to the full resolution, you’ll be able to see all the cool detail on those amazing elephants.

Returning From Fishing

Daily Photo – Returning From Fishing

About the middle of the day everyone starts bringing in their boats with their morning catches here on the beach on Madagascar. It’s cool to see all these guys carrying the boat while almost running full speed. I would have asked to help but they could probably just look me up and down and know I was useless.

Mom and Baby Elephant

Travel Photography Tutorial

If you haven’t gotten my New Tutorial, which is currently on sale, then you’re really missing out! Here’s a trailer for it:

Daily Photo – Mom and Baby Elephant

I don’t know if that’s a mom or dad. I’m just assuming it’s a mom because, if I were a baby, I’d feel like my mom is more likely to take care of me while dad is off rolling around in some mud pit with his friends. You can see some of this footage in the video above!

Our pad in Zimbabwe

Dr. Rosalind Watts –
PSYCHEDELIC MEDICINE: HOW DMT & LSD TREAT ADDICTION & ANXIETY

Here’s a great episode where you can get to know more about the good doctor here and the kind of amazing research she’s been spearheading at Imperial College London.

Daily Photo – Our pad in Zimbabwe

We stayed in lots of amazing places on the recent adventure in Africa and this was one of our favorites in Zimbabwe. We stayed here for three nights and it was our home base for heading off to visit the rare white rhinos. We do photography lessons almost every day, and this is one of the “interior architecture” photo days!

Unhorny White Rhino

Daily Photo – Unhorny White Rhino

It’s very rare to see white rhinos in the wild, so we were pretty lucky to see them in Zimbabwe. One thing I didn’t know is that the park rangers cut off all their horns so that they are not attractive targets to poachers. Kinda sad, eh? Seeing a rhino without his horn is like seeing a giraffe without his neck!
