About You Run You Die - Wild Dog

The first time I encountered wild dogs on foot, I turned around and ran away, as fast as I could. That's the absolute stupidest thing one can do, I was told afterwards. The wild dogs launched themselves and came for me like a catapult released. Unbelievable that that didn’t go awfully wrong.

Years later I wrote a book (in Dutch) with the warning title YOU RUN YOU DIE ;-) about this and other encouters with wild animals, other cultures and how and why it is not wise to run away too much or too quickly in your life. On the cover of that book is this photo, which I was able to take when I had become a little more ‘bushwise’. I had finally learned how to deal with predators like these. It was an amazing experience. I could literally smell this dog’s - not so good - breath.

About Willem Bakhuys Roozeboom
You only live twice - After spending too many years in the corporate world selling things to people that nobody really needed, Willem started his second chapter in life, capturing things that not everybody will be able to see. He sold his car to buy a camera and left his house to live in a tent in the African bush. Willem has become a wildlife photographer pur sang. Over the last 10 years he has been living in Botswana, Zambia, Kenya and Chad, to maximize his time among lions and elephants.
