A youngster, showing development of tusks, which begin to show beyond the lip when an elephant is three – five years old. Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.
A continuing series of photographs about elephants. This is my first photograph of an elephant, taken with an old Minolta, Kodak 400 film. The old film and my inexperience make this look like as if it’s an oil painting hundreds of years old. Zimbabwe, 1996, in that gorgeous evening light, a bull elephant.
Continuing a photographic series in the daily lives of elephants. And playing with the watercolor mode in Photoshop. These elephants are part of the endangered Presidential Elephants of Zimbabwe. Endangered by the very government that decreed them “Presidential.”
