They keep filling the inbox. We will endeavour to post on social media but please be patient. If there are a collection of very similar images we will just choose the best one, but keep them coming … and THANK YOU. Anyway, let me introduce you to seasoned alumni Peter Smart. The Kicheche logos should give you an idea of his vintage, he has led over fifty (50) photographic safaris into Mara Camp – both venues.
His words: ‘It has been a very enjoyable exercise to go through some of my “non-wildlife” images and remember some special occasions, with wonderful guides and lovely groups.’
Thanks Peter, now sit back and see how you did.
Another from the myopic safari club! The brooding spiteful sky, the late afternoon sun, I mean what more does a lioness have to do to get some box office? Well composed, magnificently exposed (although I expect this from PS) and begs the question: ‘what are they looking at?’ 6/10, your sensor needed cleaning.
Very clever – ‘smart’ in nature too. However some topiary required as well as a decent eye bath. I don’t much care for the orange bug photo bombing either. Find a better turned out model next time Peter. 6/10
There is a moment in the afternoon where the light changes almost imperceptibly and the temperature falls. It is almost palpable, it is also a narcotic and the trick is being somewhere fertile when this potent transformation occurs. My god Peter I want to be in that vehicle listening to the gentle snare-drum percussion as they sashay through the oat grass. I love it that neither is photographing, just intoxicated by the moment. Beautiful. Too much foreground 6.5/10
Colour, composition, poise, light, all perfect. The topi is not the subject of the optics but integral to the image. Brilliant …. however we provide bean bags, even back then, they should be employed. Shabby. 7/10
Pride and groom
Our first wedding at Kicheche was a million miles from coastal conveyor belts. I love the whole English patient look you are sporting, the hands joined behind in registrar-like pose is a gorgeous metaphor and the gnarly bough of the acacia to your left equally important. The dust, the excitement, it is all there, shame there is a balanites crown growing out of your head. 7/10
Thank you PS, for everything.
‘Kicheche, this ‘Take Me There’ caper of yours is seriously p****** me off, I can smell the breakfasts, feel the warmth, hear the animal calls, you are seriously distracting me! “….
