In case you’re wondering , I do like to photograph other things beside birds and plants, namely people and this program called “Cultural Safari Afrika” inititated by the City Council provided an opportunity for shutterbugs like me with unlimited access to take pics of people without worrying about asking consent/permission first. The only regret I have is that I didn’t take enough pics !! And I would have actually like to take a couple of portrait pics of the pretty Ethiopian girls or lovely Congolese women etc.

These are the girls I’m talking about . The dashing African MC was distracting them at this moment , I would like to personally shoot him (on camera of course).
