Hello there, today I have something different to show you guys. Everyday we wear our outfits due to various reasons. Some for work, some to impress that person conducting their interviews, others to look cool for school, others to make sure that they look their best when they go on that special date with that special someone. Many times we never notice that what we wear is actually a perfect match with the environment around us.
It takes a really keen eye to notice someone who has a perfect match of outfit with the surrounding environment. This is even more difficult in the open streets. But once you notice, then it becomes a really awesome thing. Personally I get very hyped but try as much to keep it within me.
A few weeks back, a bunch of photographers were up early in the morning in the Central Business District with the hope of catching a sunrise in the city. The morning was largely overcast but some (including myself) got the chance to see the sunrise from a moving public service vehicle. As the morning went by, everyone seemed to be wearing a color that matched with something. Taking a few pointers I got from one of my inspirational photographers, I shot everything that seemed of interest to me. Later on as I scrolled through the photos, I couldn’t help but notice the blend of what my subjects were wearing with the backgrounds. You can imagine how excited I was. I could not let it pass, I simply had to share it. This opened up my eyes to the different colors of the streets. Now almost every time I walk in town, my subconscious notes the different unique colors that i may not have noticed before, I do not think this will be the last time you see my blended photos, now that I know, more will come, as the exploration of the colors of Nairobi begins.
This is essentially a post I would have done on my Tumblr, but I thought it would be awesome to show you some of my themed works. Feedback would be highly appreciated, just leave a comment below. Till next time, Peace.
