Streets of Nairobi

*20th century movie theater

Yes, I know today is personality Thursday but as I have been saying…we are not yet up to proper programming yet so…for now i’m just switching things up a bit. Next week, proper programming! Cool?

So today I share photos that have been a small personal project the past few weeks as I took walks in our city. I have taken a keen interest & liking to street photography and would like to pursue it further but it’s hard for me as I really don’t like personal confrontation. I’d much rather shoot unnoticed that engage my subject…I know i’m a sissy in that regard, but i’m working on it. Baby steps first though, this time I hung my camera on my shoulder and held it steady using my left hand while using a remote to fire the shutter from my right hand. It was hard getting the exact shots I wanted but I succeeded at least 50% of the time. Here is what I deemed interesting.

*Nairobi City Council workers meetup outside Ambassadeur Hotel which is also a landmark bus stage

Well, that’s all folks. I hope I got you to connect with your city(if your Nairobian), if not, I hope I got you to connect with our city. Do have a fabulous day y’all.
