King of the Jungle (several images)

The average wildlife photographer is always under guidance of a game ranger. I don’t like that. Sometimes one has to take a calculated risk. So I went to observe a lion somewhere in South Africa. It’s rare that I publish fully processed photos on the internet. This is one of my exceptions: My all time favourite King of the Jungle.

World’s top wildlife photographer Laurent Baheux inspired me not to be afraid. Click on the portfolio link of his website.

Evening falls and a YouTube

Time for dinner. After dinner time for a Youtube with a selection of pictures and a few imaginaries made in the past 6 months in and around our village (Stanford, somewhere in nowhere in South Africa). Unfortunately the YouTube is for whatever reason not of the best quality but interested parties can send me their email adress (to: greenc -at- omail.co.za) and I’ll send an MPEG-4 file of about 15.4 MB,

Just wire-less

We don’t communicate with direct communication ‘lines‘. We communicate wire-less. That’s how we get the best and most affordable internet communication in South Africa. And uncapped. Communication via landlines is extremely expansive here in South Africa with about the highest rates worldwide. If we want to make a telephone call abroad we use Skype and since last weekend we can even make international calls with our cell phone for Skype-rates. That means that a call to Europe or America is cheaper than a local call via the landline of Telkom; the sole provider/monopolist of landline based communication in this country with a horrible reputation if it comes to service. That set aside; just want to show you the device, attached to our house, which makes wire-less communication possible.
