WHERE: Africa. WHAT: wild animal safari pictures.
Thumbnail click pops-up source page with a larger image.
While researching creatures for yesterday's feature, our breath was taken away by a Theo Allofs picture entitled, ' Searching Eyes, Leopard on Termite Mound at Sunrise, Namibia, Africa'. At first we thought it might even have been a graphic rather than a photograph in the strictest sense. Closer investigation revealed that it was indeed an optically recorded image from the real world… but more real than real, in the sense used by some early surrealists. Our thumbnail links to Theo's exhibit in the Afterimage.com gallery, which was the largest version of the picture that we were able to find: we advise that you stand well back after hitting the link!
On Theo's own web site, the leopard appears with eight  other pictures (each of the pages has a slide show control), in a gallery entitled 'African Safari. Check back to the home page when you have finished looking, and there are nine more galleries of breathtaking pictures available from the Fine Art Prints item in the page sidebar. Prints are available for purchase.
