Kenya Set 1

by Buster Bruce September. 05, 2019 280 views

My friend and I left for our around the world trip when I was 19 yrs old. For years my old slide transparencies sat in their Kodak trays rarely seeing the light of the projector bulb. In the Kenya Set(s) 1 & 2- I elected to take the old slides and modify them into abstract images. Though the original vintage images have the character they also shows the flaws and pits. With a little photo shop editing and coloring they still show their frame but without the flaws. These images are designed to be mounted in frames for my den. Dedicated to my children and their posterity. All images original-

Passing through the rain forests of Uganda and Central African Republic I was able to collect butterflies beneath the canopies. I placed them into plastic sleeves then sent them State side after arriving in Nairobi. They made for a great glass coffee table.

Set on the dry hot plains of the Serengeti this young female feasts on her kill prior to the pride arriving. We were approximately 50 yards away.

Ive never been so frightened as before the charge and bluff of this elephant.

I really appreciate the skills and creativity you have put into this photos. Can't decide which one I love most! I think I've looked at the butterflies ten times now. That could be also a great design for textiles. But all this images are great!

You have a style and I love your style. I too had a similar experience to you as far as an elephant pretending to charge. But then again when one is an idiot (moi) and gets closer and closer to the big guy and disturbs his peace, what does one expect? smile
