I finally uploaded all my Namibia photos and I think I’ve finally figured out why I’m disappointed in my photos even though I loved the trip. In the photos where the protagonist is facing the camera, the expressions are nothing like what you see in National Geographic photos. Okay, maybe I have unrealistic expectations.
For example, when our vehicle gets close to wildlife, I expect some kind of reaction like the photo above. Yay, I have one photo where wildlife is running away from us. But mostly we got the photo below (i.e. zebra crossing la la la).
This is probably also why that, even though it was hard to see things, the evening safari was the most exciting. The driver shone a light on a herd of elephants and they ran away from us. Okay, maybe this was a bit evil.
