Reseminnen på Canvas - Travel memories on canvas

Serengeti, Tanzania, 1998

Kruger Park, South Africa, 1996

Serengeti, Tanzania, 1998
Måndag och tisdag har vi varit i Kolmårdens Djurpark med barnen och våra grannar. Det har varit jätteskoj. Särskilt safariparken där vi såg massa brunbjörnar, lejon, zebror och annat skoj. Fotade en hel del förstås men tycker att de här bilderna ovan är lite roligare. Girafferna och katterna har jag fotat i Serengeti i Tanzania och Elefanten i Kruger Parken i Sydafrika.

Har länge velat få upp de här bilderna (och en massa andra) på väggen hemma men inte haft plats. När vi blir klara med vårt hus tänker jag göra om en massa resbilder till svartvitt och sätta i svarta ramar. Den med girafferna tror jag blir en stor canvas som ska sitta i vårt vardagsrum på övervåningen. Kvaliteten på bilderna är inte den bästa eftersom jag har scannar in dem från vanliga papperskopior. Men jag gillar det så. Det får bilderna att se gamla ut.

Monday and Tuesday we have been to Kolmardens wildlife park and visited lots of exotic animals. The best part i the safari where you can drive your own car through a park with lots of "wild animals" such as lions, zebras, bears and so on. The kids love it!

The above pictures are from previous trips to Africa. I have always wanted to frame them and hang them on the walls but dont have any room for them. When we are done building our new home I will make lots of black and white pictures from travels and hang them in blac frames. The one with the giraffs on top I think I will blow up on a large canvas and hang in our living room on the second floor. The quality is not the best as I have scanned the pictures from paper copies but I like it that way as they look more old.

Wauw! Fantastiske billeder! Du må føle dig lidt som Karen Blixen. Det ville jeg i hvert fald med sådan nogle utrolige scener på væggen.
Meget inspirerende. Er igen klar til at pakke kufferten - hvor er min safarihat?!

I can't imagine being close enough to such exotic animals as these outside of a zoo as to be able to take their pictures myself. They are beautiful.

Oh, Colonial East, my comment was misleading. I meant to say that I've only ever seen animals like those at the zoo. I can't imagine what it would be like to be in Africa and see them in their environment and then to have beautiful pictures of them that I took myself like you did. It sounds like such an adventure!
