Moments with Myles

Moments with Myles

I woke up this morning to the news of the passing of Dr Myles Munroe, his wife and others in Bahamas. I usually get sad when I hear of the death of someone I knew, but not this time. There was a sense of celebration in me. Celebration of the life of a man who gave his all to make God’s word understood to me, to know the power I have within me. His greatest lesson to me: Die empty. This is something I believe he did.

2014 Safaricom 7s

2014 Safaricom 7s

I’ve always loved sports photography. So when I saw the Safaricom Sevens billboards a couple of weeks ago, I started preparing to be there for Africa’s premier sevens tournament. I applied for my accreditation to be able to shoot from the field but two days to kick-off, I was told it wasn’t approved.

TBT – Just A Band 82 Launch Concert

TBT – Just A Band 82 Launch Concert

I remember this day quite clearly: it was Saturday 17th October 2009; there was an Oliver Mutukudzi concert going down at Bomas and the JAB 82 launch at GoDown Arts Centre; I was torn between the two and I’m glad I made the better choice. JAB’s sound was still relatively new in a country where many forms of Benga dominated the airwaves, so their fan base was small, but very dedicated. Actually, the concert felt more like a gathering of friends of the JAB lead members, Jim Chuchu, Bildad Selanga and Daniel Muli.

Nairobi by Night

Nairobi is a city that without much effort manages to be beautiful no matter what time of day you visit it. The way people from very different places on the planet interact and punctuate the city’s architecture creates scenes begging to be photographed, from sunrise to sunrise.

BMXing on the Helipad

BMXing on the Helipad

A quiet day at the office yesterday was interrupted by a pat on my shoulder by Allan Gichigi. He’d been invited to see some BMX riders doing their thing on the KICC Helipad. I quickly cleared my schedule and tagged along. I didn’t have my camera on me, only my Xperia Z1 which I decided to shoot with.

African Screens 35 – Turkana Landrovers

African Screens 35 – Turkana Landrovers

Turkana is a beautiful yet unforgiving place. The terrain will take your breath away, as well as your car’s shocks, springs and about any moving part.

In the 1960s and 70s, teams the National Museums of Kenya were sent to explore the eastern shores of Lake Turkana in the best 4 X 4 X far. They excavated fossils in areas where no car had been to before and while at it, carved out roads that are used to this day. These are the machines that made sure the teams led by Dr Richard Leakey shared their discoveries with the world, making Sibiloi the Cradle of Mankind.
