Some Phone Photos From Safari

I probably have about 10,000 million photos from the Maasai Mara and Serengeti National Park. Here are some favorites I pulled off my phone this morning. I can't believe that our two weeks in Africa are already over, and I'm back in New York sitting at my desk, writing about celebrity capsule fashion collections and manbags.
