Learn To Hesitate

Elizabeth Katarina Metzger
Dulwich College Shanghai Pudong
Year 12

Instead of revealing the face of the person committing a careless act of reaching towards a potential danger (the soiled apple hiding a wasp), I used a lion mask to cover up their identity to show that anyone is capable of making these careless mistakes or misjudging need for desire. The lion represents humanity's common feelings of pride and overconfidence in thinking and decision making.

The Great Migration

Wildebeest migration across the Mara River in Tanzania, where over two million wildebeest, zebras and gazelles follow the seasons in the Masai Mara ecosystem. It can take a few hours to wait for the wildebeest to cross the river - a few try and back away, then a brave one charge across followed by the herd. This photo was taken with a small compact Canon PowerShot SX740 with a 40x optical zoom.

Secret Feast

Chloe Prasetya

I watched this leopard feed on an unfortunate zebra draped over a tree while hunched protectively over it; his amber gaze constantly scans his surroundings. Scavengers such as hyenas tracking their every move forces leopards to bring their prize up among the branches of trees where uninvited guests cannot reach; it takes immense strength and power to do so.

I was on holiday with my family in New Zealand, there were a lot of these unique plants everywhere. I was curious and found out it is called Cortaderia. One late afternoon while we were walking to the beach, I spotted Cortaderia again but this time the background was the sea and blue sky with white clouds hiding behind. I liked it a lot and decided to capture that special moment.

This iconic clock strikes at each hour, and witnesses every minute of day passing by, weaving present into future and also unraveling the threads of history. I clicked this picture @ Dulwich London. The grandeur of clock tower along with pure, white clouds sailing by its side resonates with 400 progressive years of Dulwich and I know that clock tower shall always 'watch' over our Dulwich Family!
