..............black and white photography.
I've just found this fun photography site and decided
to join in the challenge today at the last minute.
These amazing animals were seen up close on my safari to several southern Africa countries last year. Toward the end of the trip while staying at Mala Mala in South Africa, a sunny afternoon game drive found us surrounded by lazy lionesses waking up from nap time, and a huge herd of Cape buffalo crossing the trail causing us to brake quickly! Both these animals are extremely dangerous and require respect when on their turf.
The before shot gets the fact across that the lioness has amazing teeth........changing to black and white and cropping highlights them even more. The Cape buffalo's stare seems more fierce in black and white. I added a few extras in order to frame these photos to use in a wall display.
