An evening stroll
I didn’t think too much of this photo when I was first reviewing my catalogue from this trip, but my wife quite liked it and we ended up having a print of it displayed in our downstairs bathroom. Truth be told, every time I see it I become a little more proud of it. The framing/lighting are just great. Little elements like the spacing and placement of the two larger trees, the mummy elephant’s trunk reaching out to the calf, the dust being kicked up and the way the light is falling across the elephants are the things l like most, as well as the memories it gives me of an amazing trip to Tanzania!
Shot in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania in July 2009.

OK, so admittedly this is much a test as anything else. However, it’s all part of the learning curve so here goes.
This photo is currently my desktop wallpaper, so was one of the first images that popped into my head as a potential test image.
I took this photo at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in the UK in 2010. This was right around the time that the MP4-12C was unveiled, and there was a lot of excitement around. We arrived early, and I rushed my wife through/past/around various stands and exhibits to get here before the hordes.
The car looked truly stunning burnt orange. Here’s hoping that I get the opportunity to drive one some day!
