During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    I saw this picture and I though…this must be Sylvia’s…and it is!!! Lorraine
    Sooooo great…I like Zebras!!!

  • I can’t help my predictability. I admit I’m hopelessly hooked on wildlife, remote landscapes and Africa. But I also keep reading between the lines that you are too… One of these days we just have to get you on safari!!! In the meantime, I greatly enjoy your sharing my photographic safaris with me. ;-)
    THANK YOU Lorraine!

    I don’t know if they dream but this stunning shot makes me dream of being there. Kasia

  • Thank you Kasia! I know what you mean. Often just takes a glance at an image of Africa and I’m dreaming of being there too… So nice to hear that I’ve been able to spark that dream for you! ;-)
