  1. So many ‘likes’ and no comments…. it’s a pity, because if you like it, it’s worth a commond. So, I love this picture because it’s feels like the giraffes come to you. And I like the editing to b/w. Good job 😉

    • thank you so much yvonne! the giraffes actually came to us because we got something in our hands that they pretty much craving for, lettuces and leaves! 😀

  2. The lighting in this photo is out of this world! I’m always looking at tones and lighting with black and white photos and this one reminds me of days in Brazil. The sky would be so sunny and then suddenly out of nowhere the dark storm clouds would roll in from the distance, even though we still had a very sunny sky just above our heads. This picture reminds me of that. I almost expect a downpur from this picture. Glad you had fun with the giraffes. My son told me about the neck bones too a few days ago! 🙂

    • haha. thanks java girl. i have the same feeling, longing for my childhood years living in the countryside, about 460km north of kuala lumpur. that’s why i try my best to involve my children into my love of nature as well. for the time being, it seems like it is working, and hopefully for the years to come. 🙂
