A holiday in Tanzania

hello! right now I am sitting at the airport in Nairobi waiting to catch a connecting flight to Kiliminjaro. from there we are going on a week long self-driving safari holiday – visiting the legendary Ngorongoro Crater, Lake Manyara and the Serengeti National Park. we will be camping in the Serengeti, where there are no fences. *cue wide eyed emoji here*

if you follow me on Instagram you may have caught some photos that i was sharing from my mom’s photography trip to Morocco. she first picked up a camera in her fifties and started taking photos with slide film, then eventually transitioned to digital. she now regularly goes on photography trips with her friends, most recently to Morocco – but she’s also been to Cuba, Bhutan, Turkey, Canada and all over Europe.

my mom snapped these in the late afternoon at kogel bay – bear in mind that they were taken from the coastal road above the beach – if you have ever been to kogel bay you’ll know how far away that is. love this sequence & the sunset light on the water.

my mom took this photo. she won a prize for it, too. she’s also one of those cool moms who has her own flickr account (better than mine!). she rocks. she doesn’t use photoshop at all (in fact, don’t think she knows how to use photoshop) – these are all straight out of camera shots. she only took up photography a few years back, and is super modest about her photos to boot.
