Photo of the Day – Sarova Stanley
I had intended to take this photo on Thursday, I even met up with a friend who wanted to accompany me(security detail :-)) when I got out my camera, i discovered the unthinkable, i had left my battery charging in the office. Needless to say it was a disappointing turn of events, i decided to spend that time scouting potential shoot zones instead.
So anyway on Friday(the next day), i did not forget my battery and marched into town for the shot. Good thing i met up with a few friends by chance who accompanied me and gave a sense of security during this shoot. I love how Nairobi looks at night and I endeavor to do as many shots of Nairobi night as possible.
Everything went smoothly until we finished and packed up. But as we were leaving, a security guy from the Stanley stopped us and told us we should not be taking photos for security reasons(reasons I do not understand at all). Good thing my friend David, a smooth taking digital film-maker was there and the security guy left us with our cameras(and skulls) intact. Thanks to Martin, David and Angie for your company(and security).
