I’ll have to think about this one. Carefully. I’m sure a million posts will go up about the wonder and the magic and the beauty of love, and I wish each photographer and writer well when they do so.
But, much like a photographer behind his camera, I’ve been more of an observer of love – and never quite in picture itself.
These Bushmen children in the Kalahari understand more about love than most people. They share everything without expecting anything in return. That is love…
This is Rosie, the game ranger in Damaraland. She watches over a small family of desert-elephants in Namibia. She knows them all by name and interacts with them. She’ll do anything to protect them. That is love…
When I was younger, I thought I knew a lot about love – and was quite outspoken on the subject.
I ended up digging quite a hole for myself.
In my case, the perfect sunset has always been an illusive dream. Like this spotted hyena in the Serengeti, I’ll just have to get used to looking the other way.
Sooo…my message to all you young lovers out there? Have joy. Have fun. Have a season in the sun. And look after each other with care and compassion. May your season last forever.
