    the music and those photos transported me back to africa! beautiful work!

  2. BenAugust 24th, 2012

    wowza!

  3. ChloeAugust 24th, 2012

    To be honest, I was a bit disappointed that you didn’t choose Toto, Africa. It’s a classic afterall. Even with aforementioned disappointment though, I love them all and would like to order prints of donkeys at the bus stop, creepy zebra and those giraffes for our wall of fame.
    You are burilliant. x

    Amazing. I lived about half an hour from Gaborone back in the late 80s. I miss it sometimes (but not the dust storms which used to blow me off my bike).

    My favourite is the backlit one of the tree with all the golden rays coming down. Stunning.

  5. BarbaraAugust 24th, 2012

    What lovely photos. We spent 3 weeks on a mobile safari there in 2010 so your photos brought back warm memories

  8. MariaAugust 24th, 2012

    How awesome…… the colours, the faces of all the locals, the landscaping with the harshness and beauty of hues……such a simple life and yet, such happy smiles.
    Thank you for allowing us to see this amazing work of yours.
