Weekly Photo Challenge: Community…The Natural Way

Society – as we know it – has turned into an ego-driven, selfish mass of people. Oh I know there are many, many exceptions, but one tends to become a tad cynical about humanity when the media feast on the mistakes, the wrongs, and the mishaps of the world – every day. Then the obvious question sneaks up in our quiet moments: are we really supposed to live like this?  That’s when I escape to seek answers in the only place I know: Nature…

g1But it’s also okay to be shy, to watch from a distance and to keep to yourself.

And true beauty needs no fancy dress, makeup or jewellery.

    As much as I enjoy Rolbos fiction posts, I look forward to these photoessays. It reminds me that I need to go on a 21st-century safari someday, one of those where you shoot animals with a camera instead of a gun. Thanks.
