NOTE! If you want a larger pixel size version of these pictures, or ones that aren't sharpened, just ask! The original versions of these pictures are all at 3000+ pixels, and while I refuse to POST those sized pictures here I am not against sending a larger sized version to you if you want them.

Taken at: Tanzania, Africa, 2012.

Read the rules in my journal if you wish to use this image. If you understand them and still wish to use this then please leave me a note/comment/etc so that I can know.

Edit: I appreciate the Daily Deviation, but I don't deserve this guys. Yes this was taken with my camera and posted with permission from my mother, who took it, but I wasn't there. (As I've made quite clear in the past if you look at the folder itself and my journals the entire Africa shoot - and only that shoot - was taken by my mother because I was too sick to go and we lacked the money anyways to send two people (her ticket was a gift), and we both wanted to share some of the photos with you all. Plus I asked her before she went if she could take photos for this account.) So really, I don't deserve this. AT ALL. I appreciate the nomination, and my mother is going to be THRILLED that one of her photos was good enough for this honor. *scratches head* Sorry, I should be thrilled (and I am for her) but I don't personally deserve this. I will definitely pass this honor onto her though. I'm sure she'll be extremely happy. :)

Oh well, can't stop it now that it's happened. I'll update the size now for you all since this is a little small right now and I was planning on resizing this folder anyways once I got to it. (I'm in the process of resizing most of my stuff to make it bigger.) I'll get to the others in that batch later today. (Edit: Now 3000 pixels wide for your enjoyment.)

Edit2: I just want to thank you guys for putting the biggest smile I've seen in months on my mother's face. :)
