Sun, Sand and Happiness pt 2

Part 2…

Just a continuation of part one (duh) Anyhu, more Mombasa. I would have done a week-long series like the Masai Mara one, but, there were three other photographers (@truthslinger, @shaydest, @natishem) with me. Between the four of us, you will have seen everything I saw or wanted to show (and tons more that I didn’t even know I wanted to show).

And yes, us inlanders tend to go to the coast to have a wild time, but this trip was mostly about relaxation, exploration and chilling out. And that we did by the bucket loads. I think I like listening to people talk about things they love – as much as it can become technical and I am lost halfway through, there’s always so much to be learned from people with passion.

For these last two, I was trying to get a shot of a single drop of water. Keyword: Trying. Maybe next time.

Lots of thanks, again, to Ray, The M’s,  Shaydy, Natacha, Stano, Mwihaki-for babysitting me and everyone against whom I partook in cyber-bullying, for making this a really fun trip. 🙂

  5. You know the coolest thing is that, your photos are really getting better and better by the post. That is totally cool. I like how you see and subsequently shoot. Keep growing that talent and ‘watch the money pile up’..ok it wasn’t necessary to do a Kanye line there 🙂

  6. So I prolly sound like a broken record cos I keep saying “Thank You, I’m honored” “Thank you, I am humbled” but there isn’t much else I can say, “Thanks y’all, I am honored.”

    • Ha! Chero! I hadn’t gotten round to approving your comment – safaricom internet. But it was a new kind of blood rush seeing a negative comment (not that I am encouraging any) Anyhu, thank you. And yes, you had to sign as MHC girl for me to figure it out.
