This week I think I will let the images do the talking for me--and why not? These photographs need no words. They have all the power and beauty you could ever need.
All thanks go to the talented and generous James 'Butch' Williams. Butch has practiced law for many years but he has been a passionate photographer for even longer. In fact, all his life long.
In a recent conversation with Butch about the allure of African travel, he was kind enough to agree to share these stunning images, taken during a safari in Botswana's Okavango Delta.
And what of Maun? Maun is the renowned jumping off point for most of the Delta's safaris. It may not have sites of its own but what a glorious region for which to serve as gatekeep--this vast wilderness that is often referred to as 'one of the earth's last Edens'.
As I say, I do think the photos speak for themselves but words are nice, too, and so for a little more insight and information into this extraordinary region Butch also recommends Maria Henson's blog on her year in Botswana. Maria, an associate vice president at Wake Forest University, knows a thing or two about words--and she has not one but two Pulitzers to prove it!
