South Africa is a third-world country and, although you don’t feel it as much when you’re in the big cities, it’s very apparent when you drive out into the coutry side. We took my Lada Niva out for an off-road adventure this last Saturday on a dirt road that goes all the way out to Bronkhorstspruit Dam, stopping along the way to take pictures of interesting things… I found this house quite interesting and the people were quite excited about some stranger taking pictures of their house!
I have had a fascination with reptiles and amphibians my whole life. I used to keep snakes as pets when I was a kid but I have since learnt to appreciate them in their natural habitat where they are most happy. It’s a definite challenge getting any pictures of reptiles in the wild, they are NOT keen subjects and don’t sit still for very long! You gotta be quick! Here are some shots I have taken. I will post some snake shots sometime soon!
Just been goin through my hard-drive and found some wildlife pictures I shot a while back. There’s something soo cool about wildlife photography… I love the innocence of animals out in nature, just doing what they do! Looking back at images you take and experiencing that innocence must be one of the best feelings in the world! This is my secret little passion, enjoy!
