I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.

    Awesome capture! Would he be part or all Eygptian? His profile and eyes seem to resemble Eygptian pictures I’ve seen.

  • Thank you for your comment. The bushman tribes are the oldest inhabitants of southern Africa. They are hunter/gatherers and the group who we met trapped animals and birds, collected nuts and berries and dug up elible roots and tubers. There are many tribes and they have different names for themselves however they all incorporate a “click” sound in their language. My photo of the Bushman elder is of another of this group. He did not originate with these particular people but he has joined them and is teaching them the old skills. Maurice had been to school in Namibia and spoke fluent English and Africaans as well as his native lauguage. He has chosen to return to traditional life where he is also able to translate for tourists who are interested it their way of life.
