Maasai Mara, Kenya….. a pilgrimage.

The Maasai Mara… holy ground for wildlife in Kenya.

When people learn that I am a photographer living in Kenya, they assume I am a wildlife photographer, as if there is nothing else to photograph here.  No, I am not a photographer who specializes in wildlife, but I do, from time to time, find myself in the Mara region, and one cannot help but make photos of this amazing area, including animals.  Here are a few selections from a recent trip, and I often wonder: who is watching whom?

    These are lovely ….A juxtaposition against the city scenes and portraiture …
    Your immersion in the wild mysterious world of Africa has created a collection of photos that show depths of Africa beyond the typical shots we usually see. ( You know the ones…. National geographic and Big game hunters with prize kills)
    I look forward to seeing your show ! Bring it home Jerry!

    I would also love to transport myself into the world of those elephants. Love them so much.
