"A Serious Conversation" has been juried in to the 2022 Sooke Fine Art Show. I watched this graceful cheetah meander through the tall grasses one morning in Kenya. She then slowly chased something for a few seconds, then stopped and lay down. I continued to photograph her for some time including when she stood up to look around, still calm and relaxed. It wasn't until some time later when I reviewed my images more closely that I discovered what I thought to be a shadow, was indeed a hare, sitting upright, face to face with the cheetah. On further examination of the next photos made of her standing up, I saw the hare sitting underneath her, in the shade by her hind legs and swaying tail as she surveyed the landscape. They simply seemed to be sharing the peaceful early morning sun on the savannah. I am so grateful to have witnessed and captured such rare and special moments between the two of them. The piece is 20" x 30", an archival print on dibond and a limited edition of 3.
I'll be posting blogs when I have exciting new shots to share, or upcoming shows or stories about the photos that I'd like to share with you.
