Where The Wild Things Are
Whenever I leave Africa, I leave a bigger part of me there and take a bigger part of her home with me. There is something about Africa that changes you, if you let it. It is a land full of wonder, mystery, life, death and amazement. Every place I have been able to visit on this Earth and every culture and people, have helped sculpt me into the person I am today and will become in the future. These places and people have helped me see clearer, feel deeper, and always remind me what it is that really matters in my life. As we all travel the world and have our own adventures, we will meet new people, see new lands and even push ourselves past our fears and accomplish things we never thought possible. The people and places who teach me how to be better, how to be good, and how to just simply be, are the people and places I want to share my lifetime with. After all, isn’t that what life is all about? Being better than who we were yesterday.
The following photographs are just a glimpse of my short time in Africa. As all photographs capture a moment forever, no photograph can ever put into words what I felt and learned as I was among these people, cultures, and animals. Photographers who pictures are featured in the post are Megan Lisonbee Harris, David Lisonbee and myself. Enjoy.
