Dancehall artist Kiprich came up club banger (cake soap / can’t get brown) after Vybes Kartel the world boss – as Jamaicans refer to him bleached his body / face, one of the two. The late MJ Did it although I am told he had a skin condition (convenient hah!). Most Congolese atleast the once who live in Nairobi have been spotted walking around town (next to Simmers offcourse) with very light complexion on their faces and ridiculously dark arms and fingers. You are probably wondering why I am talking about Africans bleaching their bodies / faces. well, that is the only way my little disturbed mind found best fit to introduce todays blog. I wanted to show off some African beauty . I am not saying the model is dark (women can be sensitive). Ladies and gentlemen introducing Mandi, enjoy.
Running around town, off course going about my normal business of errands here and there and rudely interrupted by Nairobi women’s provocative beauty and killer bodies (not that I am complaining, my neck has been for a while now) I bumped into this dude who looked guilty as the F word holding a bouquet of flowers. Immediately my mind started playing “House” trying to figure out what he did wrong and what is the probability of his little not so genius project working out. Two seconds later the idea behind this post was conceived with lots of pleasure as I sheepishly smiled along the street almost being confused for one of the 14 Mathare Mental Hospital inmates who pulled a prison break (got to love my country).
Long story short I decided to take some images of the reproductive organ found in flowering plans, (forgive my description – heavily borrowed from Wikipedia), but found an interesting unique approach behind the lighting. Enjoy the post.
I happen to have landed a small assignment for capturing images to be used on their promotional material for their upcoming gigg in Europe and I am must say, I was humbled to have spent a good hour with these athletes. A toned body simple mean you invest money, time, eating right, working out and most important of all hydrating you body. The sad thing about this lovely story is the fact that they can’t make a living performing in Kenya 😦 no one supports their shows. So next time you are out there take a minute, buy the damn ticket support a Kenyan acrobat.
Enjoy the Post. Follow me on twitter @wanzalla, you can also find some of my work on http://500px.com/swanzalla
This might sound rather insensitive. I have met people who have tried really hard to explain to me how they don’t have friends and I am always left puzzled, the same look I had after watching the gangnam video. Well, this post is all about Balmoi Abe, I asked him about his name and he gave me one of those techie / rocket science / blaa blaa blaa explanations and in my mind half way through it I was like “It’s cool you don’t have to finish the damn speech” We met on a set, can’t really say much about it but after having a long conversation key subjects being golf and women, that was the beginning of what I would call a friendship. Enjoy the post
Most of you know that if Apple starts producing Vehicles, DJ Decks, Golf Clubs … (the list is endless), I will be the first one to make an order. And so it happened over a drink, me and a couple of friends were arguing on which is the best platform and I found myself saying “you and your fat robot in green” … just like that, that was it. Later on a T-Shirt i0dea was born but when one Mutua Matheka aka truthslinger moved to the Android world I had to produce the t-shirt.
Some guy called Antoine de something once said, “Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction” which simply mean for that to happen there has to be some sort of marriage, and that I believe should introduce today’s post. I think most decent ladies say a small prayer and ask the Almighty (subhana wa ta’ala ….which means may He be glorified and exalted) in Arabic that they may end up marrying a God fearing man. I have no idea if that was part of Linda’s daily conversations with the most high. But she did find herself a King (Yes his real name is King) and this King is God fearing, which I would say is more than a blessing. I was humbled to have been chosen to shoot the wedding. there was alot of excitement from both families, a remarkable experience I must say.
Enjoy the post.
Wikipedia one of my favourite informative urls happens to mention the rather disturbing fact that Indians make 17% of the world’s population, and here I thought Africans love the sex but have no idea/clue what family planning is. As I drastically move to the moral of the story (if there is one) yes I love Indian food, you will definitely find me alone or with company smiling or smiling+dissecting a whole chicken poussin (don’t know the spelling) with my bare hands … true definition of multi tasking, I think.
My good friend Kitty who I hadn’t seen in a couple of month wanted to celebrate her coming birthday in a different way … and yes the theme was Indian. Some of my other images can be found on Http://www.500px.com/swanzalla
