I've just made to new works, not totally B&W, slightly toned so I might post them in a while.  They were ordered to hang either side of a fireplace, so it will be good to see if anyone likes them before I send them off.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

I assume that this thread is not limited to photos of animals.

 

This is one of my all time favourite photos from Africa.

It started life as a 35mm slide but I have had it blown up into posters both colour and B&W.

 

I'm sure it is not everyone's cup of chai but for me it instantly brings back memories of slogging through the jungle in Central African Republic and seeing this guy gardening amongst the trees. It was so totally unexpected.
