I’ve felt the pull of Africa since I was young. My grandparents traveled twice to South Africa in the early ’60s & I was entranced with the stories they treated us grandkids to each time they returned. We’d squeeze together on the floor in the darkened living room, & the carousel of slides – one after the other – would begin. I knew someday I would visit Africa.
Well, it took me a bit longer than I thought, but I finally made it – to the Maasai Mara region in southwest Kenya just across the Mara River from Tanzania’s famous Serengeti. I felt my grandparents alongside me, especially my grandpa. He was an amateur photographer. And, like me…I imagine he saw the perfect shot everywhere he looked.
I’d love to hear stories from other safari adventurers. And, if you’ve got tips for this photography hack, please shoot any & all pointers my way.
Cheers to all for a terrific 2013!
