52 Photos Project : Stripes

Bella’s prompt for this week’s 52 photos project (www.52photosproject.com) is stripes. It kindof reminded me that the stripes on each individual zebra is unique, pretty amazing if you think about it, every single zebra has its own stripe pattern, like a large scale fingerprint. It’s not that obvious when they are viewed from further away, but when you’re close enough, and actually looking……. :-), the stripes speak for themselves.

52 Photos Project : Black & White

Whilst on a game drive during a recent trip to the Addo Elephant Park near Port Elizabeth, someone asked the ranger if zebras were completely vulnerable to attack from the Lions in the Park, due to their predominantly black and white colouring against the saturated colours of the vegetation. To my surprise, he answered that on the contrary they were very well camouflaged considering Lions could only distinguish things in Black & White. Bella’s prompt on the 52 Photo’s Project this week (www.52photosproject.com) is Black and White, so I thought it would be a good idea to do a little expriment to compare the results. I used a couple of images of zebras and one of a kudu from my trip and converted them to Black & White. These images, together with the original colour images, are posted as my reponse to the prompt………………the journey continues…………
