Atop K.I.C.C |Chapter 1: The Initiation

Ahoy me mateys! Arrrhh! (Feelin’ mighty piratey today!)

Thanks for checking up with me once again.

It’s a beautiful day, got mad psyche about life and also about this post.


I was busy lazing around when my fellow , I would add, very seasoned photographers @Truthslinger and @SteveKitots decided that the hour of initiation for us (read me, @dipwiz,  @mwarv, @hmurimi, @profkatts, @skubi, @dianangila, etc, etc..) had drawn nigh. The test was to scale the tall tower that is K.I.C.C with nothing but our cameras and meet the masters at the top for the next step.

The Next Step:

This next step involved being blind-folded, chanting the photographers creed as one hopped on one leg in a circle as other members of the group shouted the alphabet-backwards. Not easy.

The last step was the trickiest but somehow I managed. It involved @Truthslinger @profkatts and @SteveKitots dressing in red hoodies with their backs against you. Then one would have to take images of the back of their heads and identify which hooded skull was who’s. Oh and the pics had to be in HDR.  At this point @dianangila wilted and had to be whiisked home by @skubi.

Ok, on a serious note, I just wanted to dedicate this post to all the lovers of photography, and to those who appreciate the technique HDR.

Note: HDR (High Dynamic Range is basically a technique that involves merging a number of pics of the same subject shot under different exposures so as to create a ‘super-pic’ that captures most if not all of the highlights, shadows, contrasts and…yeah.)

I also dedicate it to those who appreciate the true beauty of Nairobi (especially at night)


This next pic was very experimental. I merged 3 pics of the plane descending to give the effect of shadowing..the rest..I donno!

That’s it for Chapter 1. Keep it locked for Chapter 2.


Blessings & Spread the word.
