Africa - Elephant 5 by Nyaorestock Africa - Elephant 5 by Nyaorestock

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. :)

Is it a baby? And no matter that your mother took it, you picked it out from the hundreds she took and allow us to use it as stock, I'm glad it's a DD so now people can more openly use this as a stock photo for their own artwork and whatnot~

I think it was a youngster, not quite grown but at least a year old if not more. I'm happy more people get to use it, it's just complicated I guess. I'm extremely happy for my mother, she smiled so big this morning when I told her about it and that made everything worth it. I'd have just preferred getting to it in my gallery clean up and maybe setting up a dedicated account for her and her photos, even though I know she doesn't do photography enough to warrant it in the end. It's hard to explain, really and I'm probably coming off as whiny - I just think that it's her photo she should get the full honors.

Baby elephants are fantastic. It's alright, you are honest and open about the situation, and you shouldn't feel guilty that your art account is linked to your mom's work. You gave her full credit that's what matters, and cheers that YOUR work on your account will get a tiny bit more publicity.

If nothing else, I actually hope that this will inspire her to start doing photography and drawing again. She's the reason I became interested in art and photography in the first place, and has always been there to support me through everything. If this can inspire her to pick up her own art again then that would be worth it's weight in gold. I miss seeing her do these sorts of things.
Thank you for your kind words by the way, they mean a lot. :hug:

My mother took it near Lake Manyara National Park on her trip to Africa, and is allowing me to post them here since I couldn't go myself. She got some REALLY good pictures, the rest of which are going up on a joint Picassa account with the rest of the Safari goers. :)

No to both, her friend is a travel agent and managed to snag an extra ticket that she then gave away to my mother. It was her first vacation in years, and her photography skills were pretty rusty from not using a camera in awhile.

I won't call that rusty, it's beatiful, besides you also can edit it to make it look more pro. :D
