The week, we went behind the scenes of our July/August cover story with outtakes from photographer @alex_cretey_systermans: “Meet John, a young, very funny, Maasai guy who lives near Angama. John was here every day to help us out—and to keep us laughing. While I was loading my camera to take his portrait, John stepped in front of my other camera to strike his best impression of me.”
“One of the most impressive things about the Mara is the variety of species that call it home. In one frame, I could capture four or five difference species. Take this pic, for example: There are a couple of Thomson’s gazelles and a zebra, all peacefully hanging out.”
After walking a mile through the Siq—the narrow slot canyon that leads to Petra—@calijam spotted the stunning facade of the Treasury. It’s over 2,000 years old and is widely considered the ancient city’s most elaborate structure.
