Zebra crossing

Safari Fusion blog | Zebra crossing | 'Carnivale' painting by Emma Gale proudly displayed in the Safari Fusion studio

With the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and all the horse talk wrapping up last weekend, I thought I would post on Africa's 'horse' the beautiful Zebra.

For those of you that follow Safari Fusion on Pinterest you will know I have a thing for Zebras - the real ones, the cowhide rugs disguised with Zebra stripes, paintings, pictures, home decor; you name it if it has a Zebra on it I love it.

Maybe it's the monochrome stripe design of the Zebra that makes it so appealing, geometric and striking it works so well with bright colours. Regardless, I don't think I could ever tire of photographing Zebras, buying Zebra paintings and pinning away to my hearts content on Pinterest.

Here are some of my favourites.
