Two impala rams (Aepyceros melampus – Shona: mhara; Ndebele: ipala ) taking a stroll together with not too much concern for territorial claim. In fact these two appear not to be associated with ewe herds, but this is to be expected in the dry season when territorial occupancy declines. There is a little lesson in depth of field to be observed in this image.

The Hungarian photographer, Andre Kertesz, is perhaps one the earlier photographers who broke the taboo of working with small frame cameras, doing all of his ground breaking work with 35mm film while other professionals stuck to their large format cameras. He mastered composition in such a way that he was economic with expression, often striving to omit superfluous elements. He is attributed with the quotation:
“Technique isn’t important. Technique is in the blood. Events and mood are more important than good light and the happening is what is important.”
