Daily Photo – Zimbabwe Community
When we were over in Zimbabwe for my last photography workshop there, we visited a community near the lodge we were staying at during one of their gatherings. There were a whole bunch of kids there taking part in the various dances and events. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
Daily Photo – Airport in Zimbabwe
Yep, this is just how people hang out at the airport. It’s really fun to see these anachronisms that abound all around Africa. And the best part is, everyone is super nice. People in Africa (at least in my experience) are some of the kindest and most lovely and happy people in the world. The whole place is just heartwarming.
Good thread on photography NFTs
My NFT drop from earlier in the week is going super well with the sales now in the high six figure range. From my experience so far (and I’ll be documenting it all, positive and negative) in upcoming videos, it looks like this will be a significant marketplace for artists going forward. You can see the drop here and then I recommend reading this Twitter thread for a collector’s view.
Daily Photo – Mommy and Baby Elephant
I actually don’t know if that’s a female adult or not. I can’t really tell the difference. But I’ll tell you one cool thing about elephant ears. The blood vessels follow a perfect Fibonacci sequence… the same pattern you see in river deltas. This pattern maximizes the cooling of the blood.
Daily Photo – Child with Baby
I saw quite a bit of this while in Africa and it was always endearing. You would see all kinds of people with babies strapped on their bodies and it was quite adorable. Even better, they love having their photo taken. They must find it unusual that people enjoy taking photos of something they consider incredibly banal.
Daily Photo – Family Bath Time
Bathing in muddy water gets a bad rap. It’s pretty fun… and I guess if your family was always naked and kind of dirty, why not? I’ve bathed a lot in mud at music festivals and it wasn’t so bad! Sure, it makes a bit of a mess of your tent for the next morning, but that’s the next morning’s problem.
Daily Photo – Dance Party in Zimbabwe
During our amazing gathering in Zimbabwe, this guy came up to me and gave me the most loving smile. There is an amazing energy there in the middle of all the villagers coming together to dance and celebrate. Of my few trips to Africa, this was one of my favorite moments.
