a place to showcase

Stripes, sky, savannah

“Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mind-bog-gglingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God. The argument goes something like this: `I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, `for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.' `But,' says Man, `The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.' `Oh dear,' says God, `I hadn't thought of that,' and promptly vanished in a puff of logic. `Oh, that was easy,' says Man, and for an encore goes on to prove that black is white and gets himself killed on the next zebra crossing.”

  2. In most of the pictures of Africa I have seen, the light is either extreme or somewhat bland. This is one of the first images I’ve seen that captures the natural radiant brightness of an average day and I am impressed! Thank you!

    • I think the sun was right overhead, and not the best of times perhaps to take a photo. But the zebras make up for that by the sheer contrast of black and white against green 🙂
      One of my absolute favorites. Glad you liked it too Seasweetie!

  4. Not like, love! The composition feels so expansive and free, from the trotting beauty of the zerbras on the savannah, the ochre road winding, to the giraffe in the distance and the mountains farther off — all capped by that sculptural sky. It’s a wonder to be seen and a wonder such a skilled photographer as you was there to bring it back.

    • That’s exactly how it was Re….expansive…and oh so free! And you’re right….I can’t believe I was there, taking a snapshot of it all and bringing it back with me to keep forever.
