kittendom @regranned from @amivitale - photo by @amivitale. two elephant calves nuzzle each other at reteti animal sanctuary (@r.e.s.c.u.e), africa's first community owned and operated animal sanctuary. elephants are highly sensitive; if a baby elephant complains, the entire family will rumble and go over to touch and caress it. the elephants at @r.e.s.c.u.e were rescued after being orphaned — some due to drought and environmental conditions, others due to poaching. due to popular demand, the @r.e.s.c.u.e benefit fine art print sale has been extended through dec. 16. we will do everything we can to get your prints to you in a timely manner, however, we cannot guarantee that prints ordered after dec. 12 will arrive in time for christmas.

artfairmexico Opoku’s examination of textile culture considers fashion’s political, psychological, and socio-cultural role in the formation of personal identities. having received a masters in fashion from hamburg university of applied sciences, her practice is centred around the rich cultures of textiles and design, which have been an inherent part of west african identity throughout ghana’s layered history. in opoku’s socially engaged practice, west african traditions of spirituality and family lineage form a dialogue with the contemporary realities of self-authorship and hybridity. exhibited internationally, opoku’s is also known for her interventions and street actions that are imbedded within urban infrastructures. #bekindtoelephants #protectelephants #dontletthemdisappear #elephants #saveelephants #stoppoaching #kenya #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya #africa #everydayafrica #photojournalism #amivitale #nikonusa #nikonlove #nikonnofilter #nikonambassador #country #indonesia #india #russian #usa #spanish #iran #australia #brazil #brasil #germany #nigeria

nacgeotravel Foto por @babaktafreshi | • el mundo de la fotografía nocturna vea una de las mejores lluvias de meteoritos del año la noche del miércoles 13-14 de diciembre. a lo largo de mi carrera como fotógrafo de cielo nocturno durante unos 20 años, he encontrado muchos meteoros deslumbrantes, conocidos como bolas de fuego. este fue capturado desde un campamento en kenia sobre un árbol de acacia con luna y un desfile de planetas (venus, júpiter, marte). conocida como la lluvia de meteoros gemínida, será visible desde la mayoría del mundo, ligeramente favorecida para el hemisferio norte. la hora pico se espera desde la medianoche hasta las 4 a. m. del día 14 con 1 o 2 meteoros por minuto. aunque el espectáculo comienza a partir de la 1 de la tarde, después de las 9 p.m. lo mejor es disfrutarlo en un cielo oscuro lejos de la luz de la ciudad. obtenga más información sobre natgeo.com, busque el artículo "géminis 2017" y sígueme @babaktafresh para explorar las maravillas de la fotografía terrestre y aérea..• . . . . . . sigue @nacgeo @nacgeotravel @nacgeocreative #nacgeotravel#meteorshower #meteor #geminids #astronomy #stargazing #kenya #nightphotography #longexposure #astrophotography#landscape #landscapes#africa #afrika #everydayafrica #northernkenya #magicalkenya #whyilovekenya#astrophysics #nightscape #astro #astrology #satellite #stars #photooftheday #picoftheday #picofthedays #streetphotography #nature #photojournalism
