Looking back through different filters…

It’s been a busy few weeks as I have been finalising my submissions for a photography course I have been doing over the last few months.  During the course I was looking through my archived images and came across some of my travel images from a medical camp in Samburu, Kenya.  I decided to rework some of them and pop them on the blog for you to see.

In September 2009 I took a years sabbatical and set off on an adventure to Africa.  First stop….Kenya, where I would spend 7 months both working and travelling.  During my time there I met some amazing people who have become good friends, did some incredibly rewarding work and had some dream vacation time too.

They say that a picture can say a 1000 words…so I will leave the images to tell their story….

This beautiful old lady arrived late in the day, and her personality shone so brightly that I just HAD to show you her in colour.  She was fabulous!  “A smile is a smile in any language!”

In memory of James Njuguna  – 4.12.09  – a great Kenyan man whom I had the privilege of working with and who inspired hundred’s…if not thousands of people to volunteer their time to make a difference to the lives of children, young people and families in his homeland.

  1. Took me back to the time you were there, unbelievably 3 years ago!
    You’ve ‘montaged’ brilliantly.

  2. beautiful work great portrait photos like you say some things just dont need explaining just look.

  3. Like Maz it takes me back to the time you were in Africa and the times I spent worrying about you and really had no need ( ha ha ) however a great set of pictures showing your ability behind a camera Dad

      • Thanks Jacqui, you too! By the way I saw the film ‘Samsara’ yesterday. Some of the portraits there remind me of yours here. It’s a wonderful film with very beautiful images, have you seen it?

      • Hi Neil, No I haven’t seen the film yet however I will be sure to look out for it as I imagine I might enjoy it. I did spend some time over the festive period watching movies and gaining some inspiration! I look forward to catching up with you in 2013 :)
