Please enjoy the 4th blog post from my trip to Africa. I have had a busy few weeks since returning from Africa and each time I go through the images I’m still so happy with my experience and I’m loving reliving the moments. I’ll let the images from this post do the talking and please feel free to check out the earlier posts.

Have an amazing week-end and as I have mentioned before I’ll soon have a complete gallery available where you can purchase prints and pre-order the coffee table album from this trip to Africa. In the meantime simply contact me with any questions on acquiring artwork.
