Mara in black and white

This is the last post from my recent trip to the Masai Mara with Lou Coetzer of CNP in January. To provide some variation I have converted a few images into black and white. Also by way of contrast I will let the images do the talking.

“Light is meaningful only in relation to darkness, and truth presupposes error. It is these mingled opposites in our life, which make it pungent, intoxicating. We only exist in terms of this conflict, in the zone where black and white clash.”

Explore, seek to understand, marvel at its inter-connectedness and let it be.
