groove awards 2009

I need to reduce my multi tasking and just do one thing at a time.

I started my day deep in Thika at a friend’s mum’s unveiling of the cross, then went to Ngara to order some signs and was late for Groove Awards at KICC.

Being at Groove was the day’s highlight, hands down.

The atmosphere was charged with excitement and performances electric. I got to experiment with different framing techniques.

Today, in a special way, I got to see God direct my photography. All I did was click away – He did the rest.

All glory to you Dad.

Sports photography is a whole new ballgame.

There’s so many elements out of your control, top on the list being how the game turns out.

You position yourself on one side of the field and there’s no action there. You move to where you think there’s more action and the action shifts to where you were.

Lesson: stay put and pray for the action to come your way.

And yes, Kenya trumped Cayman.

The last and first time I was here was in 2004.

This time, we got to organise the trip ourselves, making it more enjoyable. Being able to plan your itinerary especially when you love taking photos is paramount.

Don’t think I’ll ever go for one of those group camping trips again.
