Zimbabwe – Stuck in Customs

Family Bath Time

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.

Dance Party in Zimbabwe

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.

While we were in Zimbabwe, we had a special surprise while on a beach. A group of local villagers came down to give us a fun show & dance. It’s always a golden opportunity for photos… I’m sure they thought we were a little weird, taking so many photos of something they do all the time, but I’m used to people thinking I’m a little weird.

Cute Kids in Africa

Daily Photo – Cute Kids in Africa

How adorable are these kids? I’m not sure where they get these shirts, and I’m 100% sure they don’t speak English, but how cool is that kid in the middle that is wearing that shirt that says “Chicks Dig Me.” It’s true, probably. Just by wearing that shirt and with that smile, chicks probably do dig him!

Amazing Balancing Skills

My friend Jessica sent me this incredible video. This gal has way more patience than I do…

Daily Photo – Daily Laundry

Here is a quick shot I grabbed while on the way to a little river in Zimbabwe. There is a small village a few miles away and the women come here every day to do the laundry then carry it back across the delta to the village. As you can see, they bring their daughters to help, teaching them from an early age.

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.

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.

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!
