Elephant Stand

I have so much love for elephants. They are incredible animals and have been my favorite since I was a little girl. What these beautiful creatures go through and have gone through for years completely breaks my heart. It needs to stop. When you Join The Herd, you help to make this the first-ever “Year of the Elephant.” The year we stop the ivory trade. And the year when more elephants are born than killed by poachers. Let’s make this vision a reality. Check it out and join at yearoftheelephant.org 💜🐘

Oh! Jiminy gosh! I just assumed if someone was asking, you already knew! Hm. Discworld is a sort of parody of the whole fantasy genre. It's a series of novels that all take place in the same universe, on a planet that's sort of like ours (except flat, and floating through space on the backs of four giant elephants who stand on the shell of a massive turtle). It's inhabited by casts of genre-aware characters who are all pretty unconventional heroes, and was written by the late Terry Pratchett.

Terry Pratchett.

Sold. 

Tired of allot of things
Sick of holding this shit in
Bursting at the seems to let it be
Mind melting away it’s been running to long over heating
Gorilla pounding on my head
Elephant standing on my chest
I just want to get good rest an great head
Wake up and only worry about counting bread
Just to go through it all again

In 1986, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University. On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air. The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully. He got down on one knee, inspected the elephants foot, and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.

As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments. Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.

Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing. The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down. The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.

Remembering the encounter in 1986, Peter could not help wondering if this was the same elephant. Peter summoned up his courage, climbed over the railing, and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.

The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter legs and slammed him against the railing, killing him instantly.

I find this image to be absolutely stunning. I am most likely going to be more drawn to it than the average person because I am obsessed with elephants, but this image alone without considering the elephants has a lot of beauty. For one thing, the fact that it has a long landscape but is quite narrow gives it a lot of intrigue. The image is also in black in white which makes it more stunning as the elephants stand out the most, being the darkest thing in the photo. The black and white also makes it look sleek and classy. I’d say the image is absolutely successful as the artist was on a trip to do some wildlife photography, and she captured a beautiful image that with no doubt has caught the eyes of all its viewers. The perspective of this photo is also really lovely because it makes the viewer feel like they are right there, looking at the elephants, seeing it in black and white like a dream.
