Escape from Nairobi

So there we are, thrown back into the bustle that is Nairobi after our amazing ten days on the Mara. Nairobi is a wild town, nothing prepares you for it but the culture shock after the beauty and tranquility of the bush slapped me right in the face! We landed at the small airport, got in the traffic and drove to the Int’l Airport. We stood in line for a very short time in the very hot and humid check in area and waited. After 30min, we’re at the ticket counter, got our tickets and got through customs without a hitch. Great I thought after hearing of some of the possible horror stories of the process. We headed up to the airline lounge, sat down, got some wine and waited the 3hrs for our flight. I pull out the slug of tickets I have for getting home and read the message printed on our boarding pass out of Nairobi. If my mind as back to blogging, I would have...

Photo Summit – Wow!

The first three presentations were an amazing start! Ren’s presentation on Street Photography was really well done with his images being some of my favorite of the presentation. Mark Cruz from Nikon presentation on Full Frame was pretty good to. Interesting the facts that were presented, some I didn’t even know! The highlight though was Yuri Dojc and his Last Folio project (you see here on stage). A very powerful presentation and demonstration why we should be photographers! But if you are here, you already know all of this. And if you’re not here, then the question has to be asked. Why Not? It’s still on, going through the rest of today and tomorrow. So … get here! Marvelous venue and presentations. Your photography will thank...

London Brilliant!

We had an marvelous day in London with our Passion in a Click presentation! Such a great group of folks with some really great questions. It would seem even with my funny California accent, I was understood. It was a great day then at the end, the door of the conference opened and I see this familiar smiley face peak in. Then, it slipped back out and was gone. I couldn’t finish up fast enough because I knew what that meant. Glen and Dave are dear and crazy friends we originally meet at Photoshop World. While they live in England, they don’t live in London. They made the trek in and found us in time to spent the evening together. They had fun educating us in the ways of London, customs and history and places to see. It was a brilliant evening. Three hours later we left the pub with side sore from laughing and the place barely intact! As you can see, the pub was unique to start...
