Finally something new!

Yes it's been awhile since I've written anything here. It's been a busy summer. However, yesterday I found something to write about.

It is the most beautiful coffee table book I've ever seen. Titled A Shadow Falls by photographer Nick Brandt, it is a collection of 58 oversize, tritone photos of East Africa. Brandt is on a mission to document the disappearing landscape and animals of this area.

When I opened the book and went through the photos some literally took my breath away. Just look at the cover photo here and you'll get a sense of what the rest are like.

Yes it's relatively expensive but it is one you'll come back to over and over again.

Now I'm curious to know more about Nick and where I can see the real photos. I want one.
