Diary of a cameraman
Imagine the tiger’s rippling beauty; the majesty of elephants crossing vast plains in trunk-to-tail formation; birds filling the sky with colour and music.
What I would give to travel back in time.
Nature has no place in fortified townships where the sea steadily corrodes defences built by quarrying whole mountain ranges.
But I feel in my every fibre the presence of wild creatures here on this Himalayan island. Seeing such a rarity has been my lifelong ambition. Getting here has been arduous.
I activate my eye-cam and creep towards the mound, hoping my thumping heart will not give me away.
