Pause for Thought

Lioness_Eyes Right_2015_08_23_9151

This lioness (Panthera leo) was lagging behind her apparently hungry pride on an early morning stroll, stopping occasionally perhaps to observe the hunting potential in the hope of a bite before settling in for the day. Usually the males of the pride lag behind, and clearly this movement of lions was transitory rather than a hunting expedition. The pride was moving towards a nearby thicket to rest up.

Cindy Sherman is a United States based photographer who works in series, typically photographing herself in a range of costumes, shooting alone in her studio, assuming multiple roles as author, director, make-up artist, hairstylist, wardrobe mistress, and model. In the late 1990ís she moved into motion picture directing. She is attributed with this quote:

“The still must tease with the promise of a story the viewer of it itches to be told”

  1. Always enjoy your photos Andrew, as they show the African Wildlife , that I have cherished memories of, as it is.

  2. Another good African picture. Shows the Lionese in natural surroundings in the heat of the country side. Hopefully you will produce a coffee table book of all these top notch pictures. Keep sending, so that our memories as we get old get refreshed with nostalgia.

  3. This is a place where one can connect to the magic and beauty of Africa. O’ Africa, my Africa! Thank you so much Andrew, for the many moments of joy you share with your photographs. Love & blessings
