As I am sure many of you can understand, sympathise with, and feel exactly same way, there is nothing quite like being out in the bush and photographing the wildlife that we love.
Being in the office for extended periods of time only heightens this feeling, and it really does add a whole new dynamic to the term ‘longing’.
Having spent the morning finalising the 2015 Big Cats and Tuskers Photo Safari page with Gerry (keep an eye out as we will be releasing it soon!), it has brought back the above mentioned longing for Kenya that I thought I had managed to put on ice for the time being as I get on with current activities.
Boy was I wrong.
Not only had I not managed this, but it rightly slapped me in the face like when the old fashioned Disney characters would hold a fish and got slapped silly by it’s tail.
How do I handle this?
I open up my Lightroom catalogue and look through the many images that capture moments that I was privileged to witness and capture. Ok, so it doesn’t sate my appetite for these Kenyan destinations and it’s wildlife at all, but I do get to relive some of the moments and be captured by the beauty all over again.
A Gloria Steinem aptly put it; “Dreaming, after all, is a form of planning.”
My words to you?
Start dreaming big about the bush, the wildlife, and all the photographing opportunities and possibilities out there.
