A family of lion-tailed maqaques in the National Zoological Gardens in Pretoria. Mommy was holding her baby when daddy came along to have a look at his offspring. Mommy allowed a brief touch and then went on to sit somewhere else with her young. Safety first!
A family of elephants drinking at a waterhole in Pilanesberg National Park. I love how green everything still is! It makes seeing animals a little bit more challenging, but the sightings that you do get are usually great because they are really close.
The tenth of May is a special day for me, a family day. It is the day that my paternal grandparents – Egbert Kamps and Johanna Vrielink – married. It is also the birthday of my maternal grandmoter – Dina Roseboom-Noppers. Today I offer this rose in remembrance of my roots.
I love to experiment with the editing of my photographs. What I like about this one is that it is so reminiscent of age-old rock paintings found in the region. Isn’t it wonderful that one can create such a thing?
