Story from behind the lens: In a world often observed from a safe distance, I sought a different perspective when taking this photo. Upon coming across a herd of elephants, I decided to zoom in, hoping to capture an intimate moment. The photograph reveals an elephant's eye framed by its intricate, weathered skin. This photo serves as a reminder to me that even in the grandest of creatures, there are untold stories within the details.
