Artist's Description

This is another eLITHOGRAH© created image that is in prelim status. It was created using low res material and thus created in a smaller format. The original photo was also taken by Tienne Riekert of Botswanna Africa. This is truly an amazing shot. I am only sad that I was not there, in person to see and record this majestic pose. I am looking forward to the possibility of working with the original data for a finished product.


Sankalai
a short-story fiction, based upon the eLITHOGRAPH©, of the same name, to the left

Nothing moved. Not sound. Not time. Not my mind. Everything was in locked frame. Only my eyes were in motion – not real motion – but recording motion. Time was on hold.

Three months earlier I had set out across the pan of the Botswanna plain to find and locate the perfect bull elephant for my wall. No, not with lead, but with pixels. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a hunter and I don’t have a problem with pulling the trigger and delivering lead to a target. But I do so only on animals I will personally consume. Elephant is not on my dietary list. Thus, I don’t shoot them. I neither condemn nor admire those who do. I just don’t do so myself. I capture all forms of wild life. Those animals I choose to consume and those natural areas in which only my eyes and the eyes of my clients can dine. But the key word here is …choose.

Two months, 26 days, 12 hours and 14 minutes later I had added 7,000 plus kilometers to the Land Rover and numerous blistered seat-rashes to my butt – but, had not taken the photo I was after. Oh I had photos, by the gigabyte. They would be filling my larder for years to come. But I did not have the trophy ‘bull shot’ I was seeking.

That is, not until 5 minutes ago.
