The Far Side

This is one in a series of email dispatches from Africa written this fall by photographer Michael Nichols to his picture editor, Kathy Moran.

Dear Kathy,

When the camera-filled four-by-four was found sitting empty and stranded in the Serengeti plains, the only clue to what might have happened was an iPod with the music set to play “A Lion’s Roar,” strangely stuck on repeat.

There were some strands of brownish yellow fur in the seats of the otherwise pristine vehicle.
