Title: Reclamation

Photographer: Graham Elliott

Location:  Port Elizabeth, South Africa

Caption:  This area of South Africa was settled during the mid-nineteenth century and became the community of Sidbury. Many of the buildings were later abandoned and nature gradually reclaimed them.

This is one of my favourite photographs and shows one of those old houses, now largely reclaimed by nature. This I feel is further underlined by the presence of this young elephant. We’d seen the elephant in the bush a short distance away and followed the track down the side of the house to meet it when it came out of the bush.

I hadn’t expected to get the shot and it was a real bonus from that day's activities. To me, it reminds us of our impermanence, despite how permanent our world feels day-to-day. The fact is that things are constantly changing. Sometimes change happens fast but there is a constant underlying change that we only become aware of after a certain time has passed, or when something happens to highlight it to us.
