I Dream of Fire.

31 Dec

For some reason, this feels like a title to a poem,So I’ll give a poem a shot.

 

I dream of fire

the flickery flames that dance to a tune

dazzling light that burns and consumes

Deep golden,lilac blue or green

colors that carry emotion from within

I dream of fire.

 

I dream of fire

but not the one that burns when you touch

of that brings light to the dark

but that which eases the pain

and cools the heated atmosphere

I dream of fire.

I dream of fire

fire that cannot be quenched

fire that cannot easily be started

a fire that is based on emotion

sparked by inspiration,

hate or affection

Fire that is personal

and cannot be shared.

A fiery identity.

I dream of fire.

 

 

lol,.. how did that Go??. Don’t judge, I did that poem under 10 minutes. I had not even planned on doing it. ( And these are not just excuses!) ūüôā

But you do have a good day/ Expect a few more posts from me as we end the Year. Happy New Year

A Cloudy Affair

29 Dec

I have always loved clouds, loved how they form different shapes. Since I was a little child, I’ve always gazed at the sky and just marvelled at the clouds. I have always felt like that is where Angels dance. They dance beautifully on the clouds hence the different shapes. On a few occassions I have been able to capture really awesome clouds.

Not even once have I not taken a photo of clouds when I am out shooting. Its like an addiction. An addiction I am quite liking.

Today’s cloud is special to me, and may be my most favorite image. The best image I have ever taken on clouds (yet) . I like it mostly because it looks like a cat/dog /lion ,.. that is the most beautiful characteristic of any cloud. The ability to change into any shape.

Any way, Enjoy the image, your comments and faves will be highly appreciated.

 

The Sunset.

29 Dec

Hey there beautiful people,.. how have you been?? ( for some reason, I keep believing that all of you who read this blog are beautiful people. ūüėČ lol, that is super good of me.

Any way, I told myself this blog won’t take a break, you know, like for the holidays. I will keep on posting whenever I feel like I am supposed to. Speaking of which, you should totally forgive me. I have been very lazy in posting. I have a bunch of images with me, just not knowing when to share. So today I was with my boy Nelate , somewhere in the Hills of Bungoma waiting for the sunset. He insisted that he would love to see one from my point of view,. so I showed him around.

I feel like I have so much to say, but as you know, the most important things on this blog are the images I post,.. so with no further ado, the posts, oh, and by the way, today you get more than one post a day. I have another post coming immediately after this.

 

 

 

and here is Nelate. Catching the flame and basking in the Glory

 

 

basking in the Glory.

 

 

there is a story behind this, but I choose to leave it for another day.

Merry Christmas!!!

23 Dec

Merry Christmas to you beautiful people. I know, I had told you that I will be blogging a little something every day. well, that wasn’t so successful. Why because I became too busy. Time was running out, and¬† I had gone out for a holiday that was compulsory.

Why exactly could I not blog the last two days? well, one is that I was on the road coming back¬† and the other is that I happen to be the creative director of this concert happening in Church today. So there have been handling the logistics. Any way, I have this wallpapers that aren’t quite funished yet. May be sharing them tomorrow! If I do not. Have a very merry Chrsitmas

 

this is the concert I’m up for tonite,….. Lets pray it turns out good.

The Spirit Of Christmas [4]

20 Dec

Greetings awesome people, or things, or viruses, aliens, and whatever other forms of things

That creep the internet. I come in peace.  ( That is why I blog)

Christmas is actually around the corner. It is exactly five days to the big day and I know Most people

Are waiting for it so badly. Especially if you are still working, and you are in that type of job that doesn’t

Give you a holiday off. It can be pretty stressful , I figure. Any who, it is important to know that the real reason for Christmas goes way beyond that, that we should be in the mood, not because we have been excused from work for a bit, but also because we  celebrate the birth of Christ.

Speaking of celebrations, I guarantee you, there is only one factor, if you live in my country that is, that can make you have a roughy Christmas day. That is the almost normal power black outs in the land.  I am praying that this Christmas  we will not experience any power black outs. I know you do too.

 

The Spirit of Christmas [3]

19 Dec

Hey good people its the third,.. the Spirit of Christmas, ( showcasing the Christmas mood ….. going strong) I love the progress.

To be completely honest, I almost did not have a plan for todays post, I was probably going to come up with an excuse for not blogging today. (Okay, not really) I was really going to blog, especially now that I have started getting some readership on this blog. You guys do not know how happy that makes me. So if you are reading this right now, just know that you are one big source of joy to me, and an inspiration for me to keep doing what I do,.. ( okay, I know this is cliche`, I actuallyread it somewhere else), but truth be told, I feel so good when you guys check out this blog.

So on to today’s post.

Today I focus on family time. I believe that family is a very important aspect in everyones life. It adds the joy and the spices that make us jovial every day. Today, my family were playing along the beach. God actually gave us an opportunity to be able to go to the coast for a family vacation. It is somewhere along the North coast, few KMs form Malindi, actually a coastal country side ( if there exists such a thing.) There is so much free space and very few people. It is the true definition of a get away!!

Some Fishermen sold us some Octopuses, which my mom insisted on cooking,.. the mare fact that I was against eating Octopus cooked by my mom whom according to me is a sea food illitrate individual (okay, pun intended), gave me reason to do this post.

I may or may not eat this Octopus today, but being involved in cooking, googling recipes (lol, I’m tech savvy like that) , and in all ways trying to make the Octopus edible made our family bond more. All in the Spirit of Christmas.

So I know its important, thats why I feel you should definitely involve your family in Christmas events this season.

Do have a good Christmas time. Enjoy every bit of it.

 

 

 

Oh yeah, and please you can email this image to your friends as Christmas greeting Cards, upload them on facebook and tag your friends, twitpic at your favorite tweeps. Use it in any non-commercial but Season friendly (Christmas) way.

The Spirit of Christmas.

17 Dec

The Spirit of Christmas. Well,  Christmas is a beautiful thing, it is. It is one of those moments that spark a lot of emotion in us. Personally, I got in the mood just as December finally got here. I have been involved in trillions of Christmas activities both in my church and around my home town,. Trying to bring out the joy that is associated to Christmas. So what I decided to do, now that there is no snow in Kenya, and well,. Trying to showcase the Christmas mood photographically speaking is kinda hard,.. so I decided to do doodles whenever I get time, these doodles usually take less than 15 minutes. So be prepared for more of these stuff, as it is exactly a week before Christmas.

 

Here we go,.. I plan to  always post something everyday till Christmas day. Keep checking for more stuff.

 

 

 

 

 

stay tuned,.. this week is going to be amazing,…. lemme take this early opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas. ( the Happy New year one is coming soon!!)

One thing for sure is zi love REtro and Vintage. It is just an ¬†awesome aspect of photography. ¬†Any way, its a new week,,, with new things , new projects coming up. I am working whith guys from Church to do this thing on 24th night. I have a feeling its gonna be awesome, ¬†I mean, it has to right??.. I’m involved, I also get to work with the Sunday School Children on a Christmas song thing. I have this week to know if I can teach music. No more than 3 adults and semi adults like me will be there, so I can screw up and love it,…

Aay who,. this week is going to be hectic, I just woke up and go t mad, mad inspiration from ¬†you tube videos I left streaming last night. there are amazing 16 year old photographers and videographers out there. The best thing is that their families support that.Isn’t ¬†that just awesome. O.k, I quit talking too much,… but I figured with no one around, I had to get my self heard somehow,… you know….

ANTZ.

2 Dec

I remember when I told you this blog takes a break. That was because I had to wind up with activities about School. By the way, I was a theology student at the Bungoma Bible School, It was time to graduate and I realised I was not even through with the terms assignments, and the rules were simple, If you aint done, you don’t graudate. So I took time off to finish em, and boy, was it stressful, next year when I join college I promise my self to do stuff on time. Working is important.

Speaking of working and its importance, what hits your mind is the colonial ants, okay, in a way, I think they were built like that. They are just workers by default. But they sure do work a whole lot. That is today’s inspiration, the ants. Enjoy.

 

 

 

 

and just how mean would I be If I didn’t show you the picture from my graduation?? Yes, my first graduation, and many more to come. I’m the fourth dude form the left, the only smiling one and the handsome looking one.¬†¬†¬† P.S, I do not know who took this photo. But I added the flair.
