At Close Range.. National Geographic


This post is dedicated to all who love photography
including my dear friend, JV
I have on several occasions asked JV to submit his work to National Geographic.

I was watching a TV documentary last night called,

I was in AWE of this man, what he does to get the perfect shot, we the viewers
of his work and others at this magazine do not know what these people give up
just to travel and also risk their lives for a photograph that will stun us
and bring happiness and tears to our hearts.

He also has seen the effects of the deforestation of the jungles
and global warming.

He lives with these visions in his mind and heart and this too effects his photography as he wants to educate all humans
how to love our earth more before it's all gone.

Please visit this link and find out more about this wonderful program .

This post is to thank Joel Sartore,
just one of the many photographers
that go beyond for all of us…

With so much respect,

HI Wenchong so many keep their mind in the "PERFECT" and there really isn't anything PERFECT.. just in our own minds eye ..This man is on a quest for obtaining the "PERFECT" and yet he has stated he feelhis photos are NOT any where near what people state about them.

Hi Fatimah,Yes you said the truth… just in our own minds eye …"PERFECT" is not really perfect, it just in our heart…You said the man who died for the bears, my heart was impacted by the story… it is grateful… " yeah "He met his fate"…I believe the "PERFECT" or the best smiling is the moment when he "MET"…YoursWenchong
