some of my very pictures in Tanzania, still shot on films.
Rhinos in the legendary Ngorongoro Crater.
The best place in the world to see chimpanzees is Mahale nat’l park. They are habituated to humans but without interferences from researchers or visitors. Other parks have chimpanzees who stay far up in trees or live in dangerous countries or are spoilt by human contacts. Mahale is da place.
A Maasai warrior. They are quite good at resisting the modern pressure.
Apparently a rare occurrence of a lion eating a dead elephant by the anus. I have sold such a picture to a scientist who specialised in that feat.
A Maasai choir.
Giraffes running while I was walking in the Ngorongoro area.
Many advertisements are still painted instead of printed posters.
A drunk Maasai man in a bar, again a painting on the wall.
That gorgeous lady was my passenger. I had noticed her 3 huge bags, she needed a 2nd taxi motorbike for her load. Notice how she is smartly dressed to go in the middle of nowhere, in the bush. She laughed and admitted than after spending years studying and working in Nairobi, she had a hard time to readjust to the bush life, was absolutely not going to dress in a Sudanese outfit in front of her friends in Nairobi but also knew that after a few days in her home bush, she’d go traditional for a while, to spare her wardrobe.
A typical soldier hanging around aircraft, usually when there are VIP’s on board. But not only.
I was in a convoy with those soldiers, full speed on the wet track. I managed to steal a picture without being shot, pfew.
Refugees posing and dancing in a military camp surrounded by rebels, Ayod.
I finally quit the crooks that employed me in South Sudan, I must admit that the South Sudanese company that leased the Tanzanian aircraft and myself was the Good one amongst the Bad and the Ugly from Tanzania. Maybe this kid will become a pilot one day.
Weapons, weapons, weapons….everywhere soldiers and civilians are armed.
Some gift from the US army?
That mama in blue was giving orders to these soldiers. She must have been a wife of one the 941 generals in South Sudan. Yes 941! That’s more than all the US forces combined. For a country of 12 millions (and decreasing), that’s quite a feat. 941 generals, that’s the cost for a lame president who is struggling to get respect and stay in power: pay and bombard them with decorations and honors. I wonder how many have been properly attending a real military school…
One of the 941…
My cargo one day: one ton of biscuits.
Those funny ladies are regularly seen, clutching that kind of cross like if it a life saver.
My lunch one day, onions and fried locusts doused with a Coke, or a fake one, I’m not sure. It tasted normal but I’m not an expert.
