Janis! Elephants are my absolute favorite for so many reasons. I love love that you had the chance to go see them and experience their presence. That last photo speaks volumes and Mike is perfection for capturing it. (I would love to purchase a print of it!)Hugs and lots of light xx
Gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. I agree with you, elephants are one of my favorite animals. They really are gentle spirits. :) I love that last picture. The first is also great! -Amanda|Living in Another Language
elephants are definitely kinda scary but really beautiful at the same time. those eyes!
oh my gosh, elephants are my FAVOURITE. but if there were still mammoths around, they would trump elephants. gorgeous, stunning photos.
I agree. Elephants are one of those majestically beautiful animals. They have such sweet but sad eyes!
Oh my. Elephants are my all-time favorite animal! How did it feel to touch one? I can't even imagine. Something about their presence exudes grace. Absolutely beyond beautiful. Thank you for sharing! xo

I see bicycles on your tank top, where did you get it from??
street market in bangkok! it was a dollar or two (and likely won't last more than a few washes, but hey!)
Nice! Well it's a lovely tank, while it lasts!
They are one of my favorite animals :) So beautiful
Goes without saying, but I'm going to say it anyway...amazing. You're blog is always such a joy to view. Your photos, always so visually honoring. All in all, amazing.:)

Wow! That last photo needs to be blow up HUGE! Lovely work, as always. But seriously, if you want to sell that as a print, I'm interested. :)www.mblissm.com
Oh sigh...I'm always in awe whenever I see animals up close.
WOW....your pictures are stunning!
so so beautiful.
I just want to hug that elephant. Such soul in those eyes!
i was lucky enough to spend time with some elephants too over spring break! incredible photos.
Stunning photos, especially that last one! I did not enjoy riding an elephant in Thailand, the treatment of the animals was terrible. I hope that the company you chose was much more ethical than ours!
wow. unbelievable. so gorgeous.
I've never thought about an elephant having eyelashes...how beautiful!!!
Oh, I love these so much!Elephants are such incredible animals, and yes, that last shot is amazing!
