The Art of Balance

Have you ever been on an elephant safari? Have you ever tried taking photographs from on top of an elephant? Well, I have and have to say that it is not very comfortable as you have to try keep your balance especially when the elephant moves or even shakes its trunk or starts feeding.

Having said this, I was gaping in wonder when I saw this elephant mahout standing on his elephant at Kaziranga National Park in Assam, North East India. And that too when the elephant was in motion. This is what I call the ‘Art of Balance’. The mahout must have had tons of experience, but you can say that he has indeed perfected this art.
