It has been a while since I have done a Week in Pictures; to be exact it’s been 40 weeks. While I have been happily preoccupied training the new rangers, viewing The Week in Pictures is something I could not go without. For readers/viewers/guests both new and old, TWIP gives me a sense of what was happening in the field or for lack of better description it gives me a sense of atmosphere, almost like I was there and I could imagine myself in the sighting.
I am always filled with sensory overload without even being there!
Anyway, fast forward 40 weeks, I have now returned to the true wonders of life as a guide at Londolozi. I have been looking forward to the privilege of posting The Week in Pictures as soon as I had the opportunity and I wish to try recreating the same feelings I had when reading the latest TWIP each Friday.
So I did a little research into narrative photography and stumbled across a quote “The event is not what happens. The event is that which can be narrated”. This rang true to me when reminiscing about the past TWIPs. I encourage you to use your imagination and create your own narrative for the following post. I hope there is a photo that resonates with you.
Enjoy this Week in Pictures…

A wonderful way to end off the week! After hours of tracking, the cool late afternoon of winter allowed us to stumble across the Flat Rock male beginning his evening patrol as the sun was setting.(ISO 500 f/2.8 at 1/800 sec)
Don defines the quintessential success story in guide development. Having limited experience in the bush or photography when starting at Londolozi, his years here have been a meteoric rise to prominence, and his understanding of the bush and wildlife around him as well ...
