Prints Prints Prints

Hey there. Been a while I must say. First post of the year. Not to worry though. The absence has been worthwhile and you’ll get to see why soon. This post is more of a formal announcement that I have been thinking about for a long time. I never really thought about its significance until quite recently. I guess this will be one of those major steps in my creative venture. Over the past year I have been taking photos that some of you have been very keen on. Some never saw the light of day on the internet and some did. The response towards them was amazing. Here now is the chance to own some of those photos in framed A4 and A3 size prints. There are a limited number of photos available that will go really well in your house, office, restaurant you name it.

The prints will be going at a flat rate of KES 2500 ($25) for the A4 size framed prints and KES 3500 ($35) for the A3 size framed prints. For orders and any questions please drop a comment below or send me an email at nairobiann@gmail.com. Free delivery of these prints will be available within the Nairobi CBD. Pick any of the photos below that you would love to get yourself a print of. Thank You for the support this far. Peace. Continue Reading →

Looking Back at 2015.

Well hasn’t this been an interesting journey. So much has happened over the year I don’t even know where to start. Very good friendships and contacts have been made, This has been a year of lots of self discovery that has made me shape up my craft as the year progressed. This is not to forget the massive creative block I had for majority of the final half of the year, but it is lifting and more work will be put out in the coming year. A number of challenges however arose that for some time almost crippled my creative journey but from those challenges I rose up even more energized to make more art. A number of landmark achievements have been made too, including having the opportunity to meet one of New York’s best photographers José Silva. This was just one among many and I will share some of them with you. Continue Reading →

The Nairobi National Park

Hey there. You remember when I said that I will try to be consistent with my blogging… Yeah, that didn’t work out quite as I hoped. But I’m back with something that I am so excited to share with you guys. So a couple of weeks back I was involved in a project that literally pushed my creativity to some heights I never thought I would achieve. This is because I was documenting kids that are as young as 4 years old, doing what they do best, having fun. On one of the days they had the opportunity to go for a game drive at the Nairobi National Park. I was super excited about this since it would be the first time I was going there, ever since I started my photography. Continue Reading →

Then try to perceive what you see above you in a different light than you did before. Continue Reading →

The Nairobi Railway Museum

Happy new month everyone. I will try and keep these posts as constant as possible. With the start of the new month, I have a new interesting feature which was made possible by a random pop up instameet (A photography meeting by people on Instagram) which was held last Friday at the Railway Museum in Nairobi. One of the things I like about such instameets  is the exposure they give one as a photographer  or an upcoming photographer and also a good forum to learn from other more experienced photographers. The Nairobi Railway Museum is a very unique museum as it mainly showcases the old rail machinery that were mostly used during the colonial period. The displays portray a very different type of story of the colonial period as it mainly shows how the development of the country started and progressed from the old locomotives to the ‘new’ ones that we see today.

A City of Patterns

Hello 2015 :)… Well it’s almost the end of January so that’s one resolution am not living by. Hope I will be more consistent in the coming months that follow. Hope you all had a good start of the year so far. It has been an interesting time where observation has been taking up a big chunk of my time. One thing that has stood out to me is how patterns play an important role in the structures we see around us. The different forms of architecture that are represented by the buildings we see everyday revolve around very unique patterns. Actually not only the buildings but almost everything we see from the pavements to the highly complex patterns we see on buildings. Continue Reading →

The Year So Far (Part 1) – Merry Christmas Nairobi

Merry Merry Merry Christmas to you all. It is a beautiful holiday for us to be with our families and enjoy the day that Christ was born. This post will be my second last post of the year, and I would like to dedicate it to my humble city Nairobi. The year so far, more or less the past 5 months since I started blogging. Not much growth has happened to the city to make a remarkable five months later kind of thing, but during this period, I have got to learn more and more about this city that already existed before, just that I never noticed them, Sharing these findings with you is my joy as I get to showcase more than the normal Nairobi that we walk past and actually get to appreciate the little details that are there in this city.

Nairobi’s Daily Hustle

Hi there, :). Hope you are having a good start of this new month, October. As for my city, I can say it has been a beautiful start so far. Bright weather, and also amazing scenery offered by the sunrises, sunsets and all through the day siting a clear blue sky through most of the days.
This will be a very different piece as I intend to illustrate this feature with Time-Lapse videos to add more emphasis to the subject instead of pictures as I have used before. The hustle and grind of Nairobi has maintained itself to be one of the key features that define the city. Continue Reading →

Nairobi in Perspective

Hi everyone. First things first, I deeply apologize for not updating my blog for such a long time. I hope that all of you have had a great time so far. Nairobi has had a series of very unpredictable weather changes with today’s being very dull. During this past two weeks that I have been away, I realised that some of the daily things we see and love to appreciate depend on the perspective to which we view them. Continue Reading →

Glass Architecture in Nairobi.

Hey everyone, last time we featured old vintage buildings in the city. As a follow up to that, today I will feature the new modern architecture in the city focusing on Glass Architecture. Architectural glass has been widely used in the recent years in the construction of buildings with an aim to beautify them. Many buildings coming up in and around the city are widely using this technology to give a better impression of the buildings. Continue Reading →
