Stiff Sentinel ( Giraffe in Profile ) by 

I went to Tanzania in the summer of 2008 to volunteer in a humanitarian medical outreach program with college students. Everyone came in different intervals, and with the way the schedule went, I happened to arrive right when the students were going on a safari. So, one of the first things I got to do upon arriving in Tanzania was go on this crazy trip touring the country’s natural riches.

A lone wolf in giraffe’s clothing!

Lanky limbs appear most grave in profile. Perhaps this giraffe is keeping an eye out for predators? Or intently ignoring those pesky humans.

This work was featured and “found” on Oct. 18, 2012! So happy and appreciative :)

Sharing and selling my photography is a joy I’ve discovered recently, rousing through pictorial highlights and making them more than what they are, so that they can be closer to what they were. Then letting it out so that it can capture someone’s eye the way it once caught me. It’s equal parts shaping and sharing that makes the process worthwhile.
