Took these in April 2011 in Mikumi, Tanzania…..a wildlife reserve. Giraffes were of special interest to me. But I have to say, the sky and the landscape plain took my breath away.

We passed this sign, and then just a kilometre or so later we encountered veritable HERDS of giraffes!
Imagine my delight….
Don’t you just love their curious expressions?! And those distinctively patterned coats against that vivid lush greenery….
The two best times to fish is when it's rainin' and when it ain't.
sometimes, you just gotta let go
not so deep after all...
'I feel the universe functioning perfectly but I'm still perfectly locked inside myself. Instead of oneness, I feel isolation.' ~ Ray Manzarek
“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.”
