At Londolozi we are fortunate to have so many staff members with incredible photographic skill and talent. When you look back at a month like December, there are countless images that stand out, which makes the task of choosing so difficult. Thus this month, I chose to scroll rather quickly through the month’s various blog posts and the images that made me gasp or lean a little closer to the screen to have a better look are the ones that I have chosen for you. Are these images ones that you would have chosen or were there others that jumped out at you over the month? We would love to hear your thoughts.
We hope that you enjoy this roundup in the rapid approach to the new year.
