I first learnt about Instameets in 2015. At the time I was just getting into photography and was looking for every opportunity to shoot. When the Worldwide Instameet 16 for Nairobi was announced, I didn’t hesitate to attend. What an experience it was! You may be wondering what an Instameet is. Allow me to educate […]

There is something exhilarating about being out in the wild, but urban spaces can be fun too if you know how to look. It is not so much about the place, as how you view it. It requires looking at things from a new perspective. I remember reading a book titled Looking and Seeing back […]

I am increasingly becoming addicted to travelling. Whether it’s a day trip or several days of camping, I’m more likely to take the opportunity when it presents itself rather than decline – especially when it involves being out in nature. There’s nothing like it. It’s therapeutic to the soul. Nature is unpretentious- what you see […]

There are things we wish we had discovered earlier because they are so amazing. It’s only in May of last year that I discovered Nature Kenya, even though it’s been in existence for ages, since 1909 actually, when it was founded as the East African Natural History Society. It is a non-profit conservation organisation that […]

Before I started blogging, I hesitated a lot. I didn’t know what I’d be writing about. Being just another blogger was something I feared greatly. Going with the crowd and following trends has never been my cup of tea. As such, it took me very long before making the first post. But a good friend […]

A continuation of the series covering my favourite subject: birds. As promised, here is Part two! And I won’t tell you too many stories. Dig right in… Hadada ibis Another noisy one! It gets its name from the loud “ha-daa-daa!” calls. It has glossy feathers on its flanks and a prominent red at the top […]

Home sweet home isn’t just an expression for me. It’s reality. I happen to live in a very serene area. The air is fresh, surroundings devoid of noise and we wake up to the sound of birds every day. Actually, we hear birds all day long. How cool is that! Cape Robin-chat I love this […]

I love celebrations. So when a suggestion was put forward for a day out to celebrate our friend Mwarv’s winning a photography award, I was all in. It’s been a while since I attended a photographers’ hangout. Quite a while. They’re usually enjoyable: being with friends, eating and of course shooting. And shooting means learning […]

Ever prayed about something you have no control over, and are aware it could turn out either way, but still prayed anyway? That was me on the last week of October last year. What was I praying about? The weather. Yes. That unpredictable force of nature. Every day of that week I’d look out the […]
