“Which way shall we go?”

A family of giraffes, photographed in the grasslands of the African savannah, Nairobi National Park, Kenya, almost 20 years ago. I remember the giraffes were grazing not too far from the road, as we were approaching them with the jeep, trying to make photographs. The driver stopped on a safe distance and stayed on the dust road, but seemingly they got a little disturbed anyway, and tried to decide whether or not – and then, ‘which way’ – to move on… We helped them out and moved on ourselves ;)

I found the print in one of my old albums, and thought it was such a pity to let it faint there, so decided to make a scan. But of course, on the scan, the scratches and marks of the ‘ages’ still are visible, so the work really asked for some vintage treatment… The FrenchKiss textures were exactly what I looking for, to ‘restore’ this lovely memory image… :)
