<p>these images were shot (in africa and mexico) with film — the stuff new photographers can't wait to get their hands on, and those of us who spent countless hours in the darkroom now view with nostalgia. i miss it, and I don't. i'm a tech-y girl in a tech-y world and digital suits me just fine.</p>
<p>both of these places were awe inspiring and humbling to me in ways beyond words. both left indelible, irreplaceable impressions, as travel will do.
<p>at our last stop, londolozi, handwritten notes on handmade paper were placed atop each persons bed. mine was a quote by wordsworth that read ";nature never did betray the heart that loved her";. that night i slept alone in a freestanding room in the middle of the bushvelt, and i felt safe. </p>
