I am a South African currently living in Australia. I have this photo on my desk, and everytime I look at it, I dream of Africa....

Please post your one picture which makes you long for the bush and tell us why if you can... It would be great to know there are people out there stuck in a city somewhere who wish they could just pack their bags and head to heavan for a couple of days when it all gets to much...

Here's mine:

Hi Maddie!
I feel the same like you! Every day I am dreaming of Africa, doing a drive through the bush to watch the wildlife....
But when I am opening my eyes I am still at home :shock:
We planned a trip to Africa in September but we had to cancel it :( So I have to wait another 7 month and I am dreaming every day of Africa....

Here is one of my favourite pics, Kruger Park near Letaba July 2008 - it´s shows harmony at the waterhole...

Yes,Maddie88,a photo on a desk speaks a thousand words.As one's mood changes,the framed image reminds one of a special place or day or happening in a context that takes one's emotion at that moment into account.Such a moment invariably makes me thankful for having the memory in a frame and makes coming to grips with certain realities much easier.Thanks for sharing your special memory.

This photo on my desk,in spite of its simplicity,constantly reminds me to live my dream.I came across this happy Giraffe family on a very special day near Shingwedzi:
