I remember the first moment I saw the antelopes in the Etosha National Park. When we arrived at our first campsite, they were grazing next to the entrance. I got really excited. We asked the ladies at the front desk if we were allowed to walk outside. They, of course, said no. The park was full of wild animals that could kill us in seconds. I felt sad and disappointed.
The next day at 8 in the morning, we were ready to drive around. The first animals we encountered were the antelopes. Finally I got some shots. We kept on driving, hoping to see some other animals. Within a few hours we saw some here and there, and also dozens of more antelopes. They were just everywhere.
On the second day, I had seen hundreds of antelopes already, and on the third day I did not even turn my head when I saw an antelope. I was literally bored of them. The antelopes had become my reality only after 3 days in a national park...
It's so weird that people get used to everything so quickly. We get used to places and over time, we can't see them from a different perspective. The same goes for things or even for people. We forget the value of things when we have them. We don't think of how fragile life is and how easy it is to lose everything. We are never thankful.
Today I look at this photo and miss the tiny sweet antelopes. Wish I was there right now and watched them walking, grazing and playing. And I know, if I'd be there right now, I'd get bored of them tomorrow.
