I first learnt about Instameets in 2015 and was fascinated. At the time I was just getting into photography and would look for every opportunity to shoot. So when the Worldwide Instameet 16 for Nairobi was announced, I didn’t hesitate to attend. And what an experience it was! You may be wondering what is an Instameet? Possibly many definitions exist but mine is: an event where Instagrammers meet to know each other beyond the screen and for a specific purpose. For photographers that purpose is, well, to shoot. After being away from these meets for 2 years, I was elated to attend one this year.

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I love being out in the wild. But urban spaces can be fun too, if you know how to look. Not primarily where, but how. It requires viewing things from a new perspective. I remember in uni a book called ‘Looking and Seeing’ that explains how to ‘see’ as an architect. Being conscious of what’s in your environment as you take it in visually. It’s a bit hard to understand especially if you’re not a creative…haha. In May I had the opportunity to ‘see’ Nairobi in a different light…read on to join in the discovery. Continue reading “Exploring Nairobi with Google Local Guides”

Join me in the celebration as I look back at it all… Continue reading “My Blog Turns 1!”
