I’m enjoying trying out some new skills with Thecandidclassroom on instagram.  This week is black-and-white, with the challenge to start on floral macro work.  I don’t think I’ve ever tried flowers in black and white.  Here is my Round One.  I always appreciate some CC!

Got a new tripod for Christmas (yay!), so went out to try working on my shutter speed.  Fog and rain don’t make amazing waterfall pictures, but it was a good chance to practice.

    These turned out WAY better than I thought they would.  Nice work.  The 1st and 2nd are my favorites.ReplyCancel

Here are the last of my photos from our Kenya adventure.  Picnic dinner on top of the bluff watching the sunset, al fresco breakfast on the Masaii Mara, and a few stray animals that I missed the first time.  Truly a wonderful adventure.

    These are stunning shots, Tami! And totally worth trekking through Mamba territory for that sunset shot.ReplyCancel

      Thank you, Christy!  He assured me later that they don’t come out too often at night.  That made me feel a little bit better…ReplyCancel

    Your comments make these all the better! Your black mamba shot is amazing. And I agree – the retired general is such a great happy picture. Love these!! ReplyCancel

Visiting the Masaii village was one of the most meaningful experiences of the trip.  Until I walked into the tiny, smoke-filled mud hut, I’m not sure I entirely believed they still exist in the world.  But these simple people are happy.  They were kind and industrious, and only laughed at me a little bit for…

    Wow.  Beautiful images of a clearly beautiful experience.ReplyCancel

We spoke with the locals, and they were confident that if we only had twenty-four hours to go on safari, this was the way to do it.  I can’t imagine that they were wrong.  We were picked up on the dirt airstrip and taken directly out to find animals.  Over just twenty-four hours, we saw…

    These pics are incredible! What an adventure!ReplyCancel

This was even so much more incredible than it sounded.  And it sounded pretty great to start with.  Thirty-six baby elephants rescued from the wild and bottle fed until they are ready to be returned.  Hubby got to pet one as it walked by.  I just received a mud bath when I got a little…

The people of the Masaii Market were my favorite part of the experience.  They charged me fully double the price of any of their wares on first pass, and then thoroughly enjoyed the bartering process as they tried to take me for every penny.  Luckily, my husband sent me with a chaperone because he knows…
