i have tried but i don't fit, into this box you call a gift, when i could be wild and free, but god forbid then you might envy me
just as i've started posting a bit more regularly i'm going to take another extended absence as in a few hours i fly to borneo to travel for a few weeks. so i thought i'd get one more post out when i should be packing. i'm particularly proud of this shot, partly because it required minimal processing (not counting the rotation to get the horizon straight) but also because it all kind of happened by accident. i was driving, well technically being driven, in etosha national park when we saw a springbok slowly walk onto the road. as soon as i reached for my camera it got spooked and started bounding into the infinite grass so i just pointed and clicked as fast as possible. i ended up with what i think is my favourite picture of the year so far. hopefully i'll be as pleased with what i bring back in my camera from borneo.
