Shishani at Sunset

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Donal Boyd

As the sun began to set, Shishani, a Namibian born artist, set out with me to the grass field. In the warm leaving sun, she spun and danced with her guitar. Inspired by the scene, she harmonized softly as she swept through the tall grass. For a brief moment, she paused, projected her guitar to the side, and began to turn her head towards me. I caught it just at the right moment as the sun peaked over her shoulder. Namibia has changed the course of my life forever and I am forever thankful for my time spent there. I love Guitar, I love Shishani, and I love Namibia with all of my heart.

Location: Sossusvlei: Sesriem Rest Camp, Sesriem Canyon, Namib-Naukluft Park, Namibia
