Sharing moments in time…

Eyeopener for Weds…


I was going through some of the Africa photos I hadn’t processed yet and found this one that I thought I’d do a little differently.  I  made it into sort of a dark black and white and then restored the natural color to the lions eye.  This was one of the three male lions of the large pride that we spent some time with in the Northern Serengeti.  He had just rolled over from part of his nap while the “women-folk” were out hunting.  Happy Weds!

    • After visiting your blog, I’m not sure what to call you….L? Lawrence? Skip? Anyway, its nice to meet another blogger of a “certain age” who plays a little guitar….

      • Skip. L. Stewart is to make it sound like I’m creative and refined.

      • Skip – I never would have tried something like that – no hope for me!

      • Thanks Skip – same goes for you if you ever get out west to San Diego. I have some pretty nice guitars that are far better than the guy who plays them – I’m sure you could teach me a thing or two….

    • RR – Thanks! The males look very dignified ….but mostly they sleep and let their lioness’s do all the work… :-)

      • Ah, that’s what I learnt when I watched the documentaries too! Only, you got to see them up close! :)

  6. Thanks Nora – I have so many lion photos from our trip (but you can NEVER have too many lion photos), I was looking for something a little different to capture the amazing eyes of these incredible cats
