After a quick scroll through the posts on my blog site, it became blindingly clear that I have been extremely lax at posting as often as I should. Despite all the good intentions, time and places seem to pass without getting a mention. The plan was to post the majority of photos on the website, however I have come to the realisation that the vagaries of Word Press are simply beyond me. Perhaps it is a better idea to simply post more photos on the much easier to use blog.
With that in mind, I realised that I have very few shots of some of my favourites trips to Africa. Below are a selection of shots from my various trips to Tanzania and South Africa. These trips were definitely worth more in-depth stories but these stories are better written at the time and not down the track. The photos themselves are the most important thing and I decided to simply add a selection here. Hope you enjoy them.
